The new $80,000 Baker dormitory which is still under con-

The seniors are in Mills house. 

The increased enrollment and the 

lack of housing have made it necessary 

for the University authorities to 

(utilize the available facilities to the 

fullest degree. 


An informal dance, "Stag or Drag", 
will be held at the Drill Hall tomorrow 
night (Tuesday) from 8:30 to 11. 

Sponsored by the University Facul- 
ty Women for their student fund, the 
dance is the first of its kind but it is 
hoped that a registration dance such 
as this will be an annual event. 

The Mello-Aires will provide music 
for the dance and admission will be 
25 cents per person. 

Total University Enrollment 
To Include 3600 Students 

More than one third of the total enrollment of the University 
of Massachusetts undergraduate school will be freshmen accord- 
ing to approximate figures from Marshall O. Lanphear, Registrar. 

The freshman class is expected to number slightly over 1,000 
including 600 men and 400 women. Of these, there will be about

A modern adequate kitchen and

occupy space on the first floor. Two 
of these dining halls are so arranged 
as to make it possible to open them 
up as one room for special occasions. 

A small third floor area is provided 
for varying groups up to 100 persons.

Plink, plink, plink. From whence 
cometh such musical notes? 

As a result of a plea by dean of 
women, Miss Helen Curtis, eleven 
pianos have been offered to the Uni- 
versity for use in girls dormitories. 

Since more than 1000 women will 
attend the University this semester, 
two new residence houses have been 
prepared for them. Neither house 
had a piano. Now there are eleven of 

What better fate could be contrived 
for an old piano than to spend a few 
years at college, expenses paid, as a 
companion to the gentle sex during 
happy hours of play? 

Board and Room Rates 
Boosted For This Year 

Board and room rates paid by the 
University of Massachusetts' students 
have increased since last fall accord- 
ing to Dean Hopkins. 

Last year's board rate which was 
$8.75 for a five day period, is up to 
$9.50, according to the dean. This in- 
crease, he feels, is necessitated by the 
raise in raw food prices of \27> over 
last year.

The improved plan for book distri-

Upper-clas.-men will purcha M their 
books in the book .store; freshmen 
will get their book.; in room 15, 1st 
floor of the C-Store. 


The book store will be operated for 
two weeks on an extended schedule 
beginning Sept. 17th to the 29th. 
Weekdays it will be open from 8:00 
a.m. to 7:30 p.m., with the exception 
oi Sept. 21 when the store will be 
closed from 10:00 until noon during 
convocation. On Saturday the 22nd 
the store will close at 3 :30. 

Mr. Ryan expects a minimum of de-

books because he has §()'/' more books

With the in-

men there is an 
increase in wom- 
en on the campus. 
According t o 
Miss Helen Cur- 
tis, Dean of Women, there will be 
about 1,000 women this year. This 
is the largest enrollment of women 
in the history of the University. The 
women will be housed in six dormi- 
tories and six sorority houses. 

In the past few years the enroll- 
ment of women has been held back, 
as Dean Curtis has said, so that we 
might accommodate the large num- 
bers of veterans who desired an ed-

ED. Note: This fa the first in a 
aeries of articles M your Student Gov- 
ernment. The object of these articles 
is not to criticize, defame or cite for 
contempt our three year old venture 
in self government, but rather to 
point out ways, which Mr. Hemtz's 
year us a senator clearly showed, that 
our student government structure 
muy be improved, and further to ac- 
quaint the student body with the 
problems facing the Student Senate. 
WY hope that these articles uill give a 
clearer view of the place of the Stu- 
dent Senate in our college community. 

It is interesting to hear the views 
of the C-store experts about what is 
wrong with the Student Senate. Some 
claim it is a rubber stamp for the 
administration, some say it is too 
weak, more ridiculous, some students 
actually feel it i s too strong. How- 
ever, the major fault with the stu- 
dent government does not lie in its 
constitution, its members, its meet- 
ings, its decisions or its power; rather 
it lies with the student body. 

The ineffectiveness of the student 
government is caused by a pathetic 

lack of interest in it by the students. 
Here, you muse "Huh, I vote for the 
senators in the fall, what more does 
believe. A nurilberdf responsibilities accompany llie many pleas- he want?" Is it really enough! Just

bettering the school's three and the

from listening to the hoarse cheers

whether she was sore because I hadn't

Your Senate . . . 

Continued from page 2 
ions of the students concerning prob- 
lems facing the university. 

Another example of the lack of stu- 
dent interest is the referendum placed 
before the student body at the end of 
last year. It contained four questions 
concerning the student tax and four 
constitutional amendments. It takes 
a two thirds majority vote of at least 
fifty percent of the students to pass 
on questions of this nature. Because 
of the lack of interest the necessary 
vote was not realized. Now, with 
some justification it may be charged 
that the referendum was held at an 
inconvenient time and that it was not 
wry well publicized. However, the 
students who did vote showed that 
these obstacles could be surmounted. 
Where was the rest of the student 
body? When the senators try to work 
for the benefit of the students they are 
hampered by this do-nothing attitude 
of the campus. 

The problem of student apathy in 
their government can be easily solved. 
The third Monday after we return, 
♦•lections are held. Every student can 
show his interest and determination to 
have a top notch student government 
by considering carefully the candi- 
dates for senator and by getting out to 
vote for the best man. 

We have had do-nothing senators 
in the past who represent those who 
think the Senate is a toy for the po- 
litical science majors to play with. 
This can be prevented by the students 
taking an interest in the coming elec- 
tion. It takes only a few minutes of 
your time and it is well worth it in 
the long run when you consider what 
the Senate can do for you. How about 
it? We have had only a sixty percent 
vote in the past, let's have ninety this 

Now that everyone is all ready to 
run out and vote, let's remember one 
more thing. After the voting, are 
you just going to forget the Senate 
exists? It takes only a few minutes 
a week to follow the activities of the 
student government. If you don't 
understand what is going on, as re- 
ported in the COLLEGIAN, ask your 
senator, it is his job to know. This is 
important. Without your support and 
backing the student government will 
l»e a sham and a joke. Get squarely 
behind it all the way. Keep your 
interest in it up all year. You will 
benefit by your support, or lose by 
your lack of support. Remember, it 
is all up to you.

Student Leaders 

Hold Conferenee 

A skit, speeches, meetings, and a 
buffet lunch highlighted the Sixth 
Annual Women Student Leaders' 
Conference at Knowlton House on 
September 14-15. 

Miss Kay Romano, chairman of 
the Conference introduced the House 
Council Skit at the meeting Satur- 
day morning. 

'•What qualities does a House 
Council need to cope with situations 
like this?" and "How can a council 
give leadership to a dorm, yet get 
the residents to use their initiative 
and feel the house is really theirs?" 
were the questions posed at the end 
of the skit. 

Miss Barbara Clifford spoke on 
"Activities for House Spirit." 

After group meetings of freshman 
counselors, upperclass counselors, and 
sorority presidents at which "Jo" 
Cormack, Charleen Palmer, and Mu- 
riel Fauteux, respectively, served as 
chairmen, a buffet lunch was served 
at Draper Annex. Miss Romano spoke 
on Senate Affairs and Miss Judy 
Broder on Women in the News. 

Chairman of the Women's Judi- 
ciary Board, Miss Polly Harcovitz, 
addressed the group on "Residence 
Regulations and Individual Responsi- 
bility" at the afternoon meeting. 

The Conference Committee was

Chronic respiratory disease, a poul- 
try ailment for which no cure is 
known at present, says Dr. Henry 
Van Roekel, professor of poultry dis- 
eases, was first reported in the United 
States in 1943. 

Only 53 flocks in Massachusetts 
have been identified as having the 
disease and the only known control 
measure is the removal of all birds 
and the establishment of a new flock. 

Some of the definite symptoms of 
the ailment are tracheal rattles, 
coughing, sneezing, and retarded 
growth. The result, of course, is loss 
of egg production and loss of income 
to poultry men.

Missing Thespian 
Is Great Loss 

It's not often that the descendant 
of a famous stage personality is lost, 
strayed, or stolen on our campus. 
Today it happened! Trixie is missing! 

Who is Trixie? Well, had you seen 
the Roister Doister production of "I

you would have witnessed the star 
performance of her thespian aunt. 

Trixie's description: orange, black,

is now well-organized enough to have

The signing up of the Little Sym-

present collegiate trend of hiring 
small groups for concerts. 

Because of the high cost entailed 
in getting larger groups, most colleges 
have been unable to provide their

groups as the Little Symphony (40 
pieces) satisfy both requirements.

Medical 'Unit Study 
Is Backed Down 

The future of the proposed medical 
school for the university still hangs 
in mid-air as this year's legislative 
session continues. 

This summer the House Ways and 
Means committee of the state legis- 
lature recommended that a special re- 
cess commission study the need and 
feasibility of a college of medicine as 
a part of the U. of M. 

The commission would comprise two 
senators, five representatives, and 
three appointees of Governor Dever. 

Earlier in the year, when measures 
were being heard, there was much in- 
terest in establishing such a school. 

Many thought that it should be set 
up in Springfield since it would be an 
ideal center for a new medical college. 

Medical groups have continually de- 
clared that there is no more room for 
students in the Boston hospitals with 
three medical schools in that area. 

Although the bill was scheduled to 
be brought up for debate on the House 
floor by the end of July, no action has 
been taken.

Mrs. Rosenberg also pointed out, as 
she and her superiors have consis- 
tently repeated, that when the present 
draft requirements cease to be ade- 
quately met, a tightening of college 
deferments would be in order. 

"This would mean that fewer stu-

their military sen-ice until after the

but it would not mean, by any means, 
that no students would be deferred 
for that purpose."

President Van Meter, in emphasiz- 
ing the fact that all real education 
is self education, urged the students 
to give serious thought to their edu- 
cational development, and to seize 
upon all opportunities offered them. 

He said that education "can pro- 
ceed surely and Hwiftly only when 
the student has an active desire to 
learn and to take that responsibility 
for his or her own education which 
leada to a considered, energetic, and 
aggressive aproach to learning. The 
materials for education are by no 
means confined to the classroom; they 
are everywhere." 

The president told the students that 
their generation would soon begin 
to take over tin- responsibilities of 
international leadership. He warned 
them not to allow the wrangling of 
Congress to undermine their faith in 
our form of government, and that this 
country is not run by inspired genius 
but by the agreement of many people. 
"The United States of America is 
one nation that has boldly advanced 
the ideal that every man should hive 
a fair chance, based on his ability 
to carry his part of the common bur- 
den of civilization," he continued. "l T n- 
just and unfair discrimination, based 
on things that are not pertinent, must 
be purged from American life. But 
remember, too, that discrimination 
based on character and ability is the 
very foundation of effective social, 
political, and economic organization." 
In a report of the progress being 
made by the university, President Vai 
Meter announced that ■ number of 
life-saving improvement* had been ef- 
fected on campus. Plans for a new

Senate Elections 

The Student Senate, one of the most important organizations 
on campus, will hold elections next week. At present the Senate is 
a temporary body composed of last year's Senators, who will carry 
on the elections so that the Senate will be able to function as a 
legal body within the next two weeks. 

It is urgent that all students take an active part in support- 
ing the Senate by electing the most efficient people to represent 
them in this body. We have found in the past that an efficient 
working group in the Senate can accomplish many useful tasks, 
which an unorganized group of students could not do on its own. 

It is the function of the Senate to bring all student problems 
to the administration and the faculty. If we elect good workers 
to these offices, we shall have many of our problems solved and 
our gripes ameliorated. 

Every student will have an opportunity to vote for the Sen- 
ators from his residential district. Those of us who have seen 
the Senate in operation in the past should feel obliged to re-elect 
those Senators who have shown their abilities as workers as well 
as to see that those who have been Senators because of their pop- 
ularity alone, who have not contributed any effort. to the job at 
hand, are not re-elected to this responsible organization. 

Students who are new on campus, especially freshmen, should 
be sure that they are electing leaders and workers to the Senate ; 
the Senate is neither a beauty contest nor a popularity poll, it is 
a vital working organization, and we must all do our best to keep 
it such. 

Keeping the aforementioned facts in mind, we must all take 
a few minutes to think about these coming elections. Who were 
the workers last, year? These people should be re-elected. Who 
were the Senators in name only? Let us not make the mistake' of 
returning them to clutter up the Senate gain this year. Who were 
the workers in high school? They shoi Id be the Senators from 
the freshman dormitories this year. 

Japan Correspondence Club 

We have recently received a letter from Japanese students 
who wish to correspond with college stud< :its in the United States. 

". . . Wejtoy* and girls 1 1 age - 23 age numbering about 2.000. 
consider it the best and the shortest way for learning democracy 
that we correspond with the college students, and have formed 
a group for this purpose . . .". the let ales. Having been urged 

to mention fcjlia worthy attempt in the Collegian, we shall include 
the" address of the organization at the end of this editorial 

We feel it an honor that the young people of Japan are in- 
terested enough in adhering to our form of government and in 
leaning more about it. This is an excellent opportunity for us 
to become better acquainted with the folkways and mores of 
Japan and to aid the future c i tizens of that nation in a fuller 
understanding of our principles and customs. 

The Japanese students are interested in all phases of our 
culture. Government, education, social activities, hobbies, sports, 
traditions, and customs are a few of the many subjects which we 
may write about and which they will be interested in. 

We are certain that those of us who wri; will gain as much 
from such correspondence as those who receive our letters will. 
Here is an opportunity for all of us to do a great service to the 
Japanese students, to our own government, and to ourselves.

INDIAN CHIEF AND WARRIOR— Shown above are Head Coach Tom- 
my Eck and Captain Jack Benoit planning strategy. 

edmen Open Season; 
ravel To Bates 

Head Coach Tommy Eck announced earlier this week that 
ie University of Massachusetts' Redmen would be put through 
\ tough week of defensive work in preparation for the season's 
pener with Bates tomorrow. Coach Eck was not satisfied with the 
efensive work of the team in their scrimmage against Amherst 
College last Friday despite the team's 33-30 win. The coaching 
tatf, however, was pleased with the 

park shown by the offensive pla- 

' r he Redmen face much the same 
roblen this year as they faced at 
he beginning of last season — the job 
1° building the team around a few 
eterana with the sophomores pro- 
id ing most of the material for the 
efer.sive squad. 

In an effort to pick a satisfactory 
i 'tensive squad, Coach Eck tried out 
foe] Reebenacker at safety, Ted Piers, 
freshman, a right half, Bill Rex at 
eft half, with very good results, but 
he full-backer up position is still 
anging between four men. Two men 
ave shown exceptional speed but 
i;i\ «• no experience; they are fresh- 
nan Bob Vafides and sophomore Phil 
>s:ello. The two men having exper- 
nce but not speed are senior Bob 
11 and sophomore Jack Wofford. 
On Monday of this week, the Red- 
en team was cut to forty-four men 
uth five seniors, fourteen juniors, 
leventeen sophomores, and eight 
reshmen retained. Of these, only 
levea are lettermon, three of them 
leing seniors. 

This apparent lack of reserves at 
il positions make it doubtful wheth- 
r a complete two platoon system will 
ie used. Important among the re- 
nin ing lettermen is George Howland 
i h«. has been out of action since the 
irst day of spring training due to a 
iroken hand. The cast has just re- 
lently been removed and George is 
ixpectad back in the lineup for the 
>(»ening game. Also outstanding cogs 
i. Coadl Eck's plans are Don Junkins 
It end ar.d defensive halfback and 
Ioel Reebenacker at nuarterbaek 
o< henacker should divide the duties

>it, following the pattern set last 

Three sophomore halfbacks, Paul 

> Vincenzo, Charley Redman, and 

Rex add to the depih at 

all three slated for a lot of ac- 

since their speed and good ball- 

iiir.gcan be well utilized under the 

T offense. Senior Bob Driscoll

The Treadmill 

by Larry Litwack 

With the advent of the fall sports 
season, a quick glance seems to fore- 
cast winning seasons for all the var- 
sity teams. 

The varsity soccer squad, opening 
its season this Saturday against Dart- 
mouth, seems to be much stronger 
than last year due to the addition of 
several stars of last year's frosh 
team. Despite the team's 3-1 loss to 
Amherst in a pre-season scrimmage 
last Tuesday, Coach Briggs feels that 
the squad should be able to better 
last season's record. 

The varsity cross country squad 
should with a little luck race through 
an undefeated season. The best news 
to hit Coach Derby this fall was that 
George Goding, star of last year's 
cross country squad, has been re- 
leased from service and is now back 
in school. Goding scored an impres- 
sive win against Williams last fall as 
he set a record for the new course. 

Goding's return, coupled with the 
arrival of several members of last 
year's undefeated frosh squad led by 
record breaker Harry Aldrich, should 
enable the Mercurymen to hit the 
peak first achieved three years ago 
when the Big Four were running for 
the Redmen. This freshman squad in- 
cidentally was the team that whipped 
the Amherst College varsity last fall. 

Tomorrow, the Redmen travel to 
Bates to try to continue their three- 
straight winning streak against the 
Bobcats. Last year's 26-0 win gave 
the Redmen the edge in the series 
with nine wins, eight losses, and one 
tie. One of the highlights of last 
year's game was a brilliant 60 yard 
run by Noel Reebenacker to set up a 
score by Marty Anderson. 

With the final roster released by 
Coa^h Eck, the squad shows six 
freshmen on the varsity squad. One 
of these, Ed Katz, is on the sidelines 
temporarily due to a pre-season in- 
jury. The rest of the contingent 
should see plenty of action this year, 
especially Ted Piers, a sharp half- 
back from Natick. The quarterback- 
ing slot will probably be split between 
Reebenacker and Benoit, similiar to 
last year.

"The Captain" 

The Redmen'8 captain this year is 
Jack Benoit, who will probably be 
the starting quarterback in the open- 
ing game tomorrow afternoon. This 
position is the same that the twenty- 
one year old athlete held down for 
most of last season. Jack, a product 
of Cathedral High of Springfield, won 
four letters there under the tutelage 
of Billy Wise, head coach. There he 
let some sort of a record by making 
he all-Springfield team as quarter- 
back for two straight years. 

In addition to his work on the grid- 
iron, Jack also won three letters in 
baseball while patrolling the outfield. 
During his season on the squad, the 
team won the State Championship in 

In his freshman year at the Uni- 
versity, Jack captained an undefeat- 
ed eleven, the only one in the past 
hree years. 

Weighing in at 165 pounds, Jack 
is one of the more rugged boys on 
the team even though he suffers 
from poor eyesight and is obliged to 
wear contact lenses while playing 

Besides being a leader on the foot- 
hall field, Jack is very active extra- 
curricularly. In addition to his du- 
ties as treasurer of his class, Jack 
la also the past secretary and new 
president of the undergraduate Var- 
sity 'M' club. A finance major, Jack 
hopes to go into insurance adminis- 
tration after graduation. 

Starting Line-Up 

For Bates Came 

Coach Tommy Eck today released 
the probable starting lineup for to- 
noi row's opener with Bates. 

Offensive — Left end— Chambers or 
Smith; left tackle — Nolan; left guard 
— Bicknell; center — Wofford; right 
guard — Adams; right tackle — Pro- 
kopowich; right end — Szurek. 

Quarterback — Benoit or Reebenack- 
er; left halfback— Howland or Red- 
man; right halfback — Piers; fullback 
— Conway. 

Defensive — Left end — Chambers DC 
Smith; left tackk — Nolan; left guard 
— Bicknell; center — Vafides; right 
guard — Brophy; right tackle — Pro- 
'.opowich; right end — Casey. 

Full-backerup- Wofford; left half- 
back — Rex; right halfback — Piers; 
safety Reebenacker.

by I'hil 

The largest freshman class in the 
university's history has enthusiasm 
and spirit proportionate to its num- 
bers. Each fall, it's open season for 
freshmen on Metawampee's hunting 
grounds, with the Maroon Key and 
Scrolls leading the chase. 

Froni Monday until Saturday last 
week, frosh gals sported herets and 
bibs, and the male half resided under 
beanies and behind name cards. Oum 
and cigarettes were a plentiful com- 
modity among the men, who had to 
keep the Maroon Key well supplied. 
The Scrolls, initiating a less strenu- 
ous plan, made certain that our U. of 
M. songs echoed through the fresh- 
man girls' dorms. 

And the hazing was not without 
humor. At 6 a.m. on the first Mon- 
day, the Maroon Key members found 
the frosh waiting for them and ready- 
to go. Enthusiasm was high. 

The group, touring fraternity 
houses, witnessed a rather unusual 
spectacle at Tri-Zeta. As the clamor 
and din moved over the lawn, an up- 
perclassman crawled out on Tri- 
Zeta's roof with a bucket of water. 
But his foot slipped and down came 


boy, bucket, and water into the bush- 
es. The revelers considered this pun- 
ishment enough, and helped the 
stunned, nujama clad individual into 
the house. 

The shouting and singing led many 
townspeople to believe either the Ko- 
rean War was over or someone was 
having a revival meeting. The bean- 
ied frosh, now wide awake, next pro- 
ceeded to the girls' dorms, where a 
girl from Thatcher showered the ag- 
gregation with periodic spurts of wa- 
ter and perfume from a wastebasket, 
leaving one Maroon Key member 
much the sweeter. At the Abbey, one 

of the more exuberant freshman tried 
to climb in a lower window with a 
bugle, hut the occupant, not liking 
his brass, never let him get beyond 
the sill. Hence the annual array :' 
unusual happenings continued in the 
true U. of M. fashion. 

Freshmen will wear their beanies 
until the rope pull across the CoQeg 
pond on Homecoming Day. If they 
win over the sophomores, the frosh 
can remove their hats and enjoy the 
sight of a pond full of soaking soph-

Senate Elections 

This seem, to be the best place to again remind the student 

body that it is time to elect its representatives for the coming 


The temporary Student Senate will conduct elections 01 :*.i) 
new Senators, who will hold office for the next year. We do not 
feel redundant in reminding you that these people must be the 
most reliable .-students available in order to keep the Senate on 
the high level which it merits and for which it was organized. 

Sorority and fraternity primary elections will be held on 
Wednesday night. With these groups lies the power to reinstate 
the Senators who worked effectively last year, as all residents of 
the Greek houses have been on campus for at least one year. It 
is their responsibility, we repeat, to eliminate all "'dead wood" 
which hindered Senate action last year. 

The Senate elections are probably the most important elec- 
tions on campus. With every student voting for the most efficient 
men and women in his or her residential district, we can have a 
successful and productive year through the efforts of this group. 

Class Meetings 

The first meeting of the Senior Class was called last Thurs- 
day morning. The assembly, at which the enrollment of the class 
was stated to be 533 students, was attended by approximately 225 
seniors. In order to abstain from daunting the spirit of this 42 per 
cent of the class, we shall say, as Dean Hopkins did, that it shows 
more spirit than has been shown by previous senior classes, but 
that is not enough. 

The senior class, we feel safe in stating, has more business 
to conduct than any other class in the University. Commence- 
ment has many aspects, for which preparations must begin well 
in advance of June. It is, therefore, the duty of every senior to 
attend class meetings so that he may know what is going to hap- 
pen, and so that he may lend a hand in a-hieving the many goals 
set up by the school and by the class executives. 

In order to legally vote on any motion, a majority (over 50 
per cent) of the voting members of the body must be present. If a 
matter which required a vote had come up on Thursday morning, 
it is obvious from the percentage quoted above, that no business 
could have been accomplished. Because of a regularity of poor at- 
tendance at class meetings in the past a negligible minority of the 
classes have had to vote upon issues before their classes, with a 
result that^vast majority of the classes, who could neither find 
time nor interest to attend such assemblies, have been displeased 
with decisions and have not hesitated to voice this displeasure. 

The Class of 1952. since its freshman year, has been a strong, 
spirited, and united class. There is no reason for any member of 
this class to have any complaint concerning the decisions made by 
his classmates. The certain way to avoid dissatisfaction is by being 
one of those who help make the decisions. 

Don't be a chronic complainant; attend class meetings and 
voice your opinions on all matters. 

Collegian Profile: 

Rev. Sidney Temple 

For th<; first time in many years, 
the University of Massachusetts has a 
full-time chaplain OH t-he campus t>> 
MrVfl the i.eeds of the Protestant stu- 
dents. The Kev. Sydney Temple, Ph.D., 
is supported by six denominational 
bodies: the Congregational, Baptist, 
Methodist, Episcopal, Lutheran, and 
Presbyterian Churches. 

Rev. Temple was born and raised 
in Pallas, Texas, where he was grad- 
uated from Terrill Preparatory School 
In H>2«. He then attended the Univer- 
sity of California at Los Angelei 
where he met Miss Marguerite Miller, 
a native of Los Angelei. They were 
married in Riverside, Calif, directly 
after graduation, and have two chil- 
dren now both in college. 

Mr. Temple was later graduated 
from Seabury Seminary School which 
is connected with Northwestern Uni- 
versity, and received his doctorate at 
Columbia University, where he served 
as an instructor. 

Rev. Temple has since served as 
pastor in Episcopal churches through- 
out the country. 

The most exciting adventure in Dr. 
Temple's life was his archeological 
expedition from England to Israel 
during the winter of IM9-60. The ex- 
pedition was the first party of indi- 
viduals to cmss No Man's Land and 
to pass from Arab .Jordan into the 
new nation of Israel. 

I>r. Temple declared it a wonder to 

behold the change from Arab coun- 
try thousands of years old, illiterate 
and backward. Into Israel, "dug from 
the desert and blooming like a rose." 
Rev. Temple described this new na- 
tion as a combination of Florida and 
California. The expedition un> • ed 
in the latter country the New Testa- 
ment .Jericho built by King Herod. 

Rev. Temple defined his purposes 
lvre at the University. H\> main aim 
IS to direct the students to the church 
of their own denomination and to 
help them remain faithful. Secondly, 
he is always ready to offer personal 
counselling to students needing help 
in the onslaught of college ideas and 
personal problems. The Student 
Christian Association chaplain also 
works with the various organizations 
on campus such as Edwards Fellow- 
ship, Embassy, and Wesleyan Foun- 

In summary, Rev. Temple aims to 
make Christianity real on this cam- 
pus, and to make a lasting Christian 
impression on all. 


The first meeting of competitors for the staff of the 
Collegian will be held in the Collegian office. Memor- 
ial Hall, tonight at 5 p.m. for Freshman Girls, and for 
other Competitors at 7 p.m. 


All students interested in learning the fundamentals 
of journalism and who wish to take part in publication 
of one of the most important units on campus are 
urged to attend. Freshmen are especially invited. 

Squadron Open 
To Air Sophs 

All Air Science II men are invited 
to attend a general meeting of the 
Air Cadet Squadron on Thursday, 
October 4. Movies, with the distinct 
purpose of. informing (as opposed to 
entertaining), will be shown. 

One function of the organization 
is to provide knowledge of the United 
States Air Force — its makeup and 
activity — to those men who will be 
numbered among its officer personnel 
within a relatively short space of 

Advisor Major Grapentine ex- 
plained at a recent meeting, that the 
Air Force is training men with the 
full intention of their utilization. He 
further pointed out that all informa- 
tion gained at this time, (through 
such an organization as the Air Ca- 
det Squadron), could be put to good 
advantage at such time as service 
may be in order. 

All Air sophomores are invited to 
attend the next meeting of the Squad- 
ron, but only with the intention of 
going to learn. Watch the bulletin 
boards for the exact tame and loca-

this fall. All of these men are now 
in the service. 

The opening of school yesterday 
was expected to bring out at least 
twelve more men to bolster the s<iuad. 
The team will be lighter and less ex- 
perienced than the past few years, but 
Coach Kosakowski still expects the 
squad to hold its own against its com- 
petition this fall. 

A bright sopt on the team is Co- 
Captain Fred Kelly, a IM pound 
fullback from Stratford. Conn., who 
looks forward to I banner year. Red 
Priest, another senior from last year's 
club, looks very good in workouts 

to date. Joe Fretas at the scatback 
post and Frank Martines, both fresh- 
men, are making strong bids for start- 
ing baokneld positions, along with 
Dick Cluff, a 180 pound back. Henry 
Heald has also looked very good in 
the backfield. Mel Stephens, a stel- 
lar back, will be lost to the squad 
for at least a week due to a bad ankle. 

In the line, Lew Mason and Al Ket- 
tle are battling it out for the center 
post, while Warren Ruekman, Charles 
Xuthold, Ait Mudgest, and Al Ugh- 
l.y are fighting for the two guard 
■lots. The tackles are headed by three 
good sized boys in 8*2H W 250 pound 
Andruk, Rob (Josselin, Wilfred Lamb, 
and Bruce Benson. Knd candidates 
are Rob Frederico, Arnon Gerard, 
Francis Flaherty, and Fleetfoot Jim 

The Aggies are scheduled to play 
I five game schedule with four of 
them al home and one away. The team 
will open their season on October 6.

enhance the University's reputation 
around Boston. In addition, the en- 
suing publicity will be much greater 
than any publicity which might re- 
sult from such opponents as WPI and 

The addition of New Hampshire 
and Connecticut to our schedule 
marks the end result of the efforts 
of McGuirk to place the University 
completely within the Yankee Con- 
ference. The rules of the Conference 
state that a team must play at least 
four member schools in football be- 
fore it can become eligible for the 
Conference championship. At the 
(present time, the University only 
plays two of these schools, namely 
Rhode Island and Vermont. The ad- 
dition of these two schools to our 
schedule shows the beginning of a 
great upswing on the part of athlet- 
ics here at the University. 

Once the Redmen are completely 
within the Conference, we have some- 
thing to gain by an undefeated sea- 
son, that kmg sought after goal. 
Now, even if we were to go through 

the season undefeated, that would 
mean little in the matter of possible 
post-season contests. Whether the 
Redmen will make a success of them- 
selves in the Conference, time alone 
will tell. 

Many students have complained 
about the lack of publicity that the 
University gains in Boston sports 
pages. They completely forget the 
fact that a school must have winning 
teams before it can expect much in 
the way of publicity. We cannot ex- 
pect the Roston papers to give much 
space to a school that usually ends 
up around the .500 mark. Especially 
when there are so many Greater Bos- 
ton schools competing for space. 
When the University starts produc- 
ing winning teams, then the students 
have a legitimate right to seek pub- 
licity. Until that time, we must be 
prepared to stay in the mists of ob- 
scurity. After all, no publicity is 
better than bad publicity anyway. 
One gets pretty sick of seeing head 
lines stating 'Massachusetts whipped 
by Springfield'. Better such stories 
I should die en route to the printer.

Goodell Safari 

Nets Odd Prize 

A candlelight procession of three 
students stumbled out of Goodell Li- 
brary Sunday night to find the cause 
of mysterious scratchings at the base- 
ment window. 

The curious noise seemed to be com- 
ing from the cement encasement of 
the window. Finding no flashlight, 
the ever-ready students decided on 
the candles. In a few minutes, they 
found the animal was a muskrat. Off 
they paraded with brooms and ice 
choppers to kill it.

fur for that worn spot on her coat,

The Editorial Board of the INDEX 
announced yesterday that the 1951 
yearbook will retain the name IN- 

Although a student vote last year 
indicated a desire that the name be 
changed, the recent death of INDEX 
Literary Advisor Professor Charles 
N. DuBois has resulted in a reconsid- 
eration of plans to obtain a new 

The 1951 INDEX will be dedicated 
to Mr. DuBois, and the Board feels 
that the name under which Mr. Du- 
Bois worked for many years in hi8

Football Rally Tonight 

The Redmen will play their first homo game of the 1951 foot- 
ball season tomorrow. As is customary, most of as will be at Alum- 
ni Field to cheer our team on to victory. 

It is traditional on ourcampui to hold football rallies on the 
nights preceding all home games. By these rallies, we get our- 
selves into a certain frame of mind, one of enthusiasm and school 
spirit, with which we can best attend the game. 

At football rallies we practice our cheers, sing school songs. 
dance around a bonfire, and generally get into the mood for the 


Our enthusiasm at the rallies is usually a sign to the men on 
our football squad that we are behind them, LOO percent. No team 
will let down a spirited group of supporters without an all-out 
tight. Through our exuberance, we instill a great deal of confidence 
in the players, confidence and the will to win. 

Those who have participated in previous rallies know how 
much they can mean to everyone concerned. The new students on 
campus will not only find enjoyment in their first rally, but we 
feel confident that they will look forward to coming rallies. 

A torchlight parade will pick up all dormitory, fraternity, and 
sorority residents and lead them to the site of the rally. The band, 
drill team, cheerleaders and tanks will head the procession, in 
which every student will take part. 

The first football rally is tonight!!

Fraternities For Democracy 

B€CAU8C Of an anLi-diseriminatory polity adopted by the Uni- 
versity <d' Connecticut, four fraternities on that campus have re- 
cently severed their affiliations with their national organizations. 
A move of this kind shows definite signs of progress and democ- 
racy at work. 

The fraternities. Lambda Chi Alpha. Sigma Nu. Kappa Sigma, 
and Sigma Chi. according to the Connecticut Campus, have left 
their nationals because they contain discriminatory clauses against 
racial or religious groups. In leaving a national organization a fra- 
ternity assumes a number of handicaps, especially the loss of a 
sound financial backing. It stands to reason that an association 
of over LOO chapters will invariably be stronger, financially and 
spiritually, than a single local house. Vet these groups have made 
the sacrifice of security in hopes of starting a movement toward 
removing discriminatory clauses from national constitutions. Such 
a move may mean the end of segregation and discrimination on 
a nation-wide, and perhaps world-wide, basis some time in the 


According to the Campus. Lambda Chi Alpha and Sigma Nil 
both reported that they were hopeful of realliliating next year, 
but that their national conventions were not helJ this year so that 
it was impossible to make amendments to their constitutions. If 
the discriminatory clauses are stricken out of these national con- 
stitutions, as their members strongly feel they will be. another 
*step in the right direction will have been taken. 

As a comment, we should like to add that we have heard much 
talk by fraternity men on our own campus about the same prob- 
lem. Now that action is being taken on other campuses, a move- 
ment on ours is in order. Talk rarely accomplishes much— actions 
-peak louder than words. 

An admirable start in the direction oi democracy in a true 
sense has been attempted. The fraternitiea mentioned above de- 
serve the gTeatesI commendation, as do those on our campus thai 
are in the process of taking similar action. Perhaps a sacr t'ui* on

No nation 

enough locals sever their affiliations, something will be done on a 
national scale and eventually all chapters will return to their or- 
iginal master organizations to live in peace and brotherhood, as 
their derivation signifies.

The other way liei right here In 
our student body. We have at the 
present time a student enrollment of 
over 8500 people. Each one of these 
people are potential salesmen for the 
University. If the students would only 
realize this and would take every 
available opportunity to sell the I'ni- 
versity, we might see many changes. 

NU longer would the State Legis- 
lature be so free in cutting our bud- 
get. It's a funny thing, but the stu- 
dent body represents close to lo.uoii 
voters simply through their immedi- 
ate families. If pressure was brought 

to bear by the students, results would 
soon DC forthcoming in the Legisla- 
ture. Politicians never overlook a 
chance for reelection. 

If the students could gel together, 
they could force the politicians to de- 
clare their intentions towards the 
University, and then vote according- 
ly. This may sound complicated at 
first because n<> one wants to work. 
However, a little consideration will 
soon show the feasibility of such a 
plan. More on this idea later.

It was indeed a parade. In the lead

two M-24 light tanks; and following 
the wail ike tin cans came people r 
bunches of people. Looking more 
closely I discovered they were my 
fellow students. It looked like the 
parade might be the beginning of a 
successful party. 

"Arch", I said, barely managing to 
restrain him from emptying a waste- 
basket on the unsuspecting column, 
"where \s your school spirit. It's a

A glimmer of understanding crossed

Leaving the correction of Archie's 
grammar to his already overworked 
pedagogues, I went downstairs and 
watched the marchers pass, until Arch 
arrived, shrugging on a field jacket 

Suddenly, immediately after the 
it gin" of the Alma Mater (which I 
must learn one of these days), the 
rallyers started doing strange things 
around the bonfire. I re\iewed my 
'soc' courses mentally, but couldn't 
identify the ritual. It came closest 
I ■> bein" a sort of South American 
Indian dar ce. bttl certain of the sig- 
nificant characteristics were absent. 

After giving everyone except the 
dean's secretary .1 cheer, and hearing 
the coach promise a top-heavy tri- 
umph for the Redman* in spite cif the 
far: that the earning opponents were 
"giants of the' gridiron and had not 
tasted dcfoat,for 15 straight {games", 
the fanatics started what they termed 
a snake dance around the fire. As the 
tail of the dance writhed by us, Arch 
joined in wholeheartedly. I was some- 
what perplexed as to the esttSe of his 
enthusiasm ur.til I saw that the last 
spot was taken by a rather attracive 

damsel. I speculated on her reaction 
when she found that the adjacent 
segment was occupied by a large, un- 
shaven character, with a face that 
would have delighted, but confused, 
a physiognomist. Oh well, 1 thought, 
boys will be beys. 

I turned to leave, as the (ire was 
by now nothing but a bed of glowing 
embers, when suddenly I spotted a 
couple of guys choosing up on a tilth 
of Seagrams. Striking while the iron 
n as hot, I sauntered over and intro- 
duced myself. They were compatible. 

From then on it was a fine rally. 
As I clambered back into the dorm,

Augusta, 6a. 

To the editors of the CoftfftMl ! 

I was much interested in the recent 
request in the Collet, uin of Japanese 
students who wished to correspond 
with American students. I recall, 
years ago, when I was in high school 
at B. M. C. Durfee, Fall River, Mass. 
I used to correspond with a student 
in Germany. I had many pictures and 
post cards from him. He certainly 
wrote better English than I wrote 
German. I often wonder what ever be- 
came of him. As for Japanese, it must 
not be forgotten that we had one bril- 
liant Japanese instructor in Dr. 
Charles E. Marshall's department of 
Microbiology by the name of Dr. Aaro 
Itano. I heard from him a few times 
from Osaka, Japan. When I was in

China after the last World War, I 
met many of the Japanese soldiers 
who were waiting to be repatriated. 
I met one who could speak excellent 
English. Since at that time mail was 
prohibited from being sent to Japan, 
I wrote a letter and asked that he 
post it to Dr. Itano when he got back. 
However, I have never heard again 
from him during the intervening 
years. When I flew to China the plan- 
stopped just outside of Tokyo, and by 
a streak of luck I was able to take I 
jeep ride into Tokyo. We went 
through Yokohama, and such destruc- 
tion as our air-men made of that city 
— not a single building left standing. 
Many smoke stacks left standing, but 
that was all. Tokyo itself was spared 
from bombing as here was the Imper- 
ial Palace. Now that we have signed 
a Peace treaty with Japan, I believe 
it will afford an excellent opportunity 
for student exchange of ideas, cus- 

toms, etc. I hope the students at tfaj 
Univ. of Mass. will find it possible i 
do this, especially since it is not to-

was a former member of her facult;.

Fires Aren H Funny 

Since President Van Meter has designated this week as Fire 
Prevention Week, we feel that the problem of the fire hazard de- 
serves mention on this page. 

Fire is one of our most dangerous adversaries. In the past 
four years we have had several experiences with this menace on 
this campus. We can recall a minimum of fires in our college gen- 
eration, and although we hope that we shall not have to witness 
another, the possibility is always here. Fire has hit every possible 
place where it could find the men and women of the University— 
a sorority, a fraternity, a dormitory, and a class building have 
all been fire victims within our memory span in Amherst. Any of 
us could have been injured in one of these blazes. 

There are many ways in which we invite our flaming enemy 
into our houses. How inflammable were the decorations your house 
used to liven up the last pa/tyj Witl? more than fifty per cent of 
guests and members smoking, how great a chance did you take 
with vour lives and theirs when you planned your interior embell- 
ishments ? These are a few things to consider as we attempt to con- 
trol such a hazard. 

The advisability of prohibiting smoking, the device of this 
menace, in rooms crowded with clothing and furniture, should 
not be overlooked. It is a nuisance to have to go to a specified room 
whenever you want a cigarette, but isn't it a greater nuisance to 
have your clothes, furniture, and even your house burned with the 
possibility of causing injury to persons and | or loss of life? 

A room cluttered with debris, waate paper, and other material 
which should be disposed of is the perfect breeding place for a 
conflagration. Does your room fit this description? If so the few 
minutes it may take to clean it up and to throw away aU refuse 
may pay off in many extra years of life. Worthwhile, isn't it? 

Poor electrical wiring can cause many mishaps, not the least 
of them the subject of this editorial. Do not load up outlets by 
using three-way sockets. If you reside in a sorority or fraternity, 
suggest that the wiring be checked. Make I ure that cords of lamps 
and other electrical devices are in good woiking order. We cannot 
check too carefully on these matters; they may mean so much 
more than mere words can convey. 

Fire prevention is everyone's job. Fires begin through our 
negligence. Our thought and care can prevent them. Fires are 
not funny. Much more serious are the dreadful results of fire. We 
have all been taught from our early years how to avoid the causes 
of fires. We must put these lessons into effect. Fire Prevention 
Week is a good time to start a practice which we shall make a 
part of our everyday lives— a practice which can insure more days 
of life.

quality at reasonable prices. 


Campus Interviews on Cigarette Tests 

No. 23 







lhis classy campus caper-cutter got his snootful of 
cute cigarette tests. It didn't take him long to dig out 
the fact that cigarette mildness can't be determined 
by a mere single puff or quick-sniff experiment! 
Millions of smokers, on and off the campus, have discov- 
ered there's only one true test of cigarette mildness. 

IT'S THE SENSIBLE TEST ... the 30-day 
Camel Mildness Test, which simply asks you to 
try Camels as your steady smoke — on a day-after-day 
basis. No snap judgments. Once you've tried Camels 
for 30 days in your 'T-Zone" (T for Throat, 
T for Taste ) , you'll see why . . .

Fumbles and costly penalties by the University of Massachusetts gave 
rester Tech its third consecutive one point victory over the Redmen at 
nni Field last Saturday. A near capacity crowd saw numerous aeoring

Worcester '.i yard line only to have the play called back because of an

running play from scrimmage. This was an indication of things to come,

Briggsmen Lose 

The varsity soccer team suffered 
its second consecutive defeat Saturday 
by losing a heartbreaker to Union 
College by one goal. Up to the last 80 
seconds of the last quarter, the score 
was tied, 1 to 1. Union's center-for- 
ward, GaiUUnueller, then rained all 
hopes of a victory by the Briggsmen 
by hooting in the deciding goal, a few 
seconds before the final whistle. 

The only Massachusetts goal, which 
came in the second quarter, was by 
"Boh" White, a freshman. Although 
the score is indicative of poor offen- 
sive play by the Redmen, this was de- 
finitely not the case. The forward 
line was continually hammering at 
the Union goal but due to spectacular 
play by Greenfield, the Union goalie, 
they were limited to one tally. 

The game in general was an exam- 
ple of fine soccer playing, with t In- 
offensive and defensive play of both 
sides being superior.

Last Saturday afternoon, I had an 
opportunity to sit in the press box at 
the WPI game. After the hospitality 
of the athletic department, my esti- 
mation of those worthwhile gentlemen 
has gone up one hundred per cent. 
In the way of a few sidelights, the

held by Sapienza of B. C. who j sometimes that of a martyr. If Coach

watching the Redmen fumble away 
the Tech game, he has a very strong

cannot be blamed on the coach. It was

at Tilton School, also broke last Williams game. 

Bemember the old cry of 'break 'in 
the Yankees.' Well, last year's intra- 
mural champions, Berkshire B, lost 
most of their starting team to fra- 
ternity sixes. Despite this fact, the 
team seems to be following the pat- 
tern set by Old Man River as they

for their third straight league crown.

other was the sight of George Goding

not yet had a chance to get in 
shape. In last year's race, Goding 
finished closely behind Zeleny. Let's 
hope he repeat! last year's show 
against Williams in which he set a 
new record for the course while run- 
ning the Purple harriers into the

running of Hal Allen who turned in 
his usual outstanding effort.

impressed by the spirit shown by the 

Crowd estimated at more than 1500 
students. The season is still young. If 
team wants to keep the I ipport 
of' the school behind them, they must 
start playing better hall. It's all i 
to lose games, but why go out and 
hand them to the opposition. The stu- 
dents want nothing more than to iup- 
port a team that wins its share of 
games. Despite the fact that Tech

could have done hotter against thil

Previous to World War II, it was 
the custom of many Alumni to return 
to the campus on the weekend of the 
V. M.— Amherst game. The discontin- 
uance of that traditional game an 1 
the interruption caused by the war, 
caused many not to return as they 
had usually done. At the end of the 
war it was deemed necessary to make 
Ho mec oming weekend official in order 
to encourage more interest in the al- 
ma mater.

open the concert season at the Uni-

turn engagement in the Curry Hicks 
Physical Education Bldg. on Thurs- 
day, Oct. 18 at 8 p.m. 

The group was organised in 1942 at 
Fort Dix, N. J. by men of the 372nd 
Infantry Regiment. A succession of 
notable appearances to stimulate war 
bond sales led the Army to set up the 
\ chorus as a morale unit to entertain 
other troops and, during the next 
three years, they sang for American 
armed forces all over the world. 

When the war ended the singing 
| infantry men decided to stay together 
under the direction of their leader, 
Captain Leonard de Paur. Under his 
leadership they have become one of 
the most important professional chor- 
uses of the time strengthened by the 
more than 3,000 concerts they have 
sung together. 

Tickets for the forthcoming concert 
may be obtained by calling Amherst

Solons Day 
Is Postponed 

The annual Legislators' Day to ac- 
quaint the legislators with past im- 
provements of the University has 
been postponed, it was announced by 
the Dean's office today. 

In place of the mass annual visit 
of the solons, , a small committee will 
come to study special problems. 

As a result of last year's Legi&lat- 
or's Day a scholarship bill was passed 
which provides the University with 
2 j academic scholarships to each elasi 
with no individual one exceeding $150. 

The main reason ior postponement 
of the day is the fact that the legis- 
lature is still in session. Another na 
son being that the administration 
feels that the day will be more suc- 
cessful and interesting if held test 

lot near Mem Hall where student, 
gather at 7 p.m. to witness a "bon- 
fire Concert" by the U. of M. band 
playing school songs and popular 
numbers by the light of the bonfire.

ent to lead NBM cheers and stir ap 
spirit for the Homecoming game with 
Williams on Saturday. 

Adelphia and Isogon, joint. IpOO 
sors of the "bonfire Concert", h:i • 
expressed the hope thai the stutfc 

will make this rally even more 
cesaful than the torchlight paradt 
held last week. 

Immediately following th< 
there will be an all-campus square 
dance in the cage under the sponsor 
ship of the I. F. C. to raise' money t<> 
support a war orphan in Eorope. 
Contributions will be taken up f" 
this cause. Larry Loy of the Exten- 
sion Office will do the calling and 
will be backed by his own orchestra.

as to myself. Why do some students, 
ami college ones at that, take the at- 
titude that nobody will object if they 
"cut in" just this once? (Once il 
about twice a day for them.) Can't 
they take their proper place in line? 
In view of the above situation, 1 
make B Itrong plea to those student- 
involved to change their attitude and 
wavs. It is so easy, and so much 

quicker, to "cut in", but remeni' 
those who are at the end of the :. 
are equally anxious to eat ami fa 
on their way. So then, despite Di 
per*| inefficient method of checkni 
off names— which cause longer delal 
than necessary— try to apply a lit: J 
self-discipline and save that "cut- 
in" for emergencies only.

A letter from Robert E. Bertram, alumnus of the class of

Sk d a £2 spring, the letter went unnoticed. A new year has 
bescun and we feel that it is time to renew this off ei. 

1 Bertram has made an attempt to provide assis ance to a 
stude n who puts a great deal of time and effort into extra-curnc-

Ms ^stipulation is a reciprocal offer for the student director

Idnien have spent a hard week in practice getting ready for 
Borrow'* Homecoming game again*! Williams. A battle of the

lense as that used by the Redmen 

Both dubs have identical records. Williams lost to Lehigh in 
opening game, and last Saturday 
(v defeated Connecticut T-('». Know- 
that the Ephmen's split "T" has 
exploded to date this year, the 
Issachusetts coaching staff has 
ji ked hard to insure that they don't 
wa1 last years wide open game. 
Wednesday's practice session, the 
flmen spent most of the day on de- 
rive work against the Purple's 
lit "T" offensive as line coach Joe 
Ui worked with the forward wall 
its job of stopping the fast Wil- 
)ns backfield. Ilackfield Coach Earl 
lulen had the backs on pass defense 
I preparation for an expected pass- 
attack from the Ephmen. 

^aptain Jack Benoit and Bob Nolan 
ft spent some time on their punt- 

Benoit, who has done most of the 
pting to date, increased his aver- 

for punts by five yards in last 
kurday's game, but the coaching 
iff is still not satisfied with his 
•ts. There might be some shifts in 
borrow** starting backfield. The 
Idnien are loaded with halfbacks

Vermont has taken the measure of 
the Blue and White gridsters for the

them as the favorites in the forth-

hope to spring a few surprise* on the

The Vermont squad is bolstered by

its fifth American tour, the first 
being at Dartmouth College on Octo- 
ber 15. This year, the group will 
give 18(1 concerts in a tour that will 
traverse the United States and Can- 
ada, and not close until next April. 
The Dt Paur Infantry Chorus will 
head south to sing in Central Amer- 
ica and the West Indies, May 1. 

The De Paur Chorus was the first 
important musical attraction t<» <|, 
veh.p from World War II. Originated 
in 1942 by men of the ITtnd Infan- 
try at Fort Dix, N. J., the group 
began its appearances to stimulate 
war bond sales. Then the Army, 
realizing the potentialities of such 
talent, set the Chorus up as a moral 
unit to entertain other troops. Dur- 
ing those next three years, they 
sang for American armed forces all 
over the world. 

When the war ended, the men 
found themselves bound together by 
a mutual desire to maintain their 
successful combination. Under the 
leadership of Captain Leonard Di 
Paur, the group moved into the civ- 
ilian circuit. Since then, the De Paur 
chorus has given 3000 conceits. 

Mr. De Paur has chosen the fol- 
lowing selections for his concert 
here at the I'niver.sity.

Where's That Old Spirit? 

e , 1V of our alumni at Saturday's football game against 

Williams College was. "What has happened to our school spirit? 
We should like to echo this cry. 

We have a group of cheerleaders who tire themse ves out in 
an attempt to instill enthusiasm into the observers in the stands 
but it al seems to be to little avail. Eight cheerleaders cannot 
m^ke enough n oisi , for three thousand "fans'*. And isn't it embar- 
• atrng to hear the visiting team making more noise and cheering 
their team on with more support than we do . 

There are numerous explanations for the lack of unified spirit 
on our aide Of the field. On Friday nights before the games we 
have our rallies. The new cheers are explained for us at these 
rallies but If we do not attend, we have no way of learning them. 
When'the majority of the group does not know the cheers, they 
inevitably fall flat at the time when they should be used to then- 
best advantage. A winning team needs encouragement. 

Another reason for the poor presentation of school cheers at 

To the Editor of the Collegian: 

October 17 has been set as the 
date on which the International Re- 
lations Club will present its first 
speaker of the year. The International 
Relations Club is an organization in- 
terested in fostering a better under- 
standing of world affairs. 

T. a lot of us, "a better understand- 
ii.-r of world affairs'* sounds like a 
nice innocent cliche, something that 
shouldn't disturb anyone's mental 
equilibrium very much. And maybe 
in less critical times, this is all right 
—though many wisely doubt it. Right 
now, however, regardless of what the 
situation was in the past, we have to 
face a fact: a better understanding of 
world affairs isn't any longer a mat- 
ter of mere academic interest: it is, 
to put it very mildly, an urgent ne- 

And so the International Relations 
Club on any campus shouldn't be just 
another extra-curricular activity. It 
isn't a presumption at all to say that 
this club should take precedence over 
any other on campus at this time. 
Membership isn't asked for on any 
formal, dues-paying basis. Attendance 
at meetings is the only— the most 
important — requirement. The intent of 
the club is to transmit information, 
promote thought, and stimulate Intel- 
ligent action, on the part of students 
and faculty alike. One of the best 
ways to begin such a three-fold ac- 
tivity is by hearing out some people 
who have beer in touch with interna- 
tional affairs, who have gone to the 
trouble of doing some thinking on 
their experience, and who are willing 
to share that experience and thought. 
The International Relations Club ex- 
pects to |et just such speakers. 

Bat providing speakers is only half 
the battle. And a battle half-fought 
may as well not be fought at all. So, 
if the International Relations organ- 
ization can bring the speakers, it's 
the responsibility of the rest of the 
college population to come to hear 
those speakers. 

Students presumably come to col-

Let's go to the rally and cheer at the games. What difference

The Treadmill 

by Larry Litwack 

For the past two weeks, the resi- 
dents of Hamlin and Knowlton Hous- 
es and their dates have been com- 
plaining rather bitterly about the 
perking situation in front of their 
dorms on date nights. They resent the 
fact that the campus police have been 
tagging those people who park in 
front of the dorms. 

In an effort to clear up this argu- 
ment, I spoke to Red Blasko, the cam- 
pus cop. He cleared up the case in a 
\ery short time. 

In the first place, the law which 
prohibit* parking on the main road is 
a state rather than a college rule. 
Hence the campus police in coopera- 
tion with the Amherst police are re- 
quired to enforce it. The road at that 
point is not wide enough to permit 
cars to park without obstructing the 
main road. 

The main complaint of the students 
is that when a fellow stops to pick up 
or drop off his date, his car is im- 
mediately tagged. In answer to this, 
the campus police reply that anyone 
who stops for only a minute is not 
togged. Those cars which are parke 1 
there empty or with occupants en- 
gaged in a little harmless recreation 
will be tagged because they do every- 
thing but set up residence on the 
main road. 

The University officials have not 
failed to realize this situation. They 
would like to build a parking lot be- 
hind the two dorms, but this project 
would cost anywhere from $2o.i»(h» to 
$:',n,000 to construct due to the drain- 
age problem that the area presents. 

Anyone who is conscious of the way 
the state hands out money knows how 
difficult it will be to get this money 
without a long struggle and wait. 

The proposal to build a horseshoe 
driveway in the front of the two 
dorms wa:; rejected because the ad- 
ministrate I) feels that this would de- 
stroy the landscaping of the dorm. 

The canrms police also pointed out 
the many parking areas very close to 
the two f'orms. The residents of 
Knowlton House may use the parking 
area next to Skinner Hall. The resi- 
dents of Hamlin House may use the 
| parking area to the north side of 
Lovers Lane. The residents of the Ab- 
bey may use the parking area next to 
the building as well as the area be- 
hind the chemistry building. All of 
these areas are within easy distance 
of the dorm. Thus the students ac- 
tually have little or no legitimato 

social way, is to begin to be mature 
and responsible. The issues that are 
discussed here, in what one might 
think is an academic way, are the 
very same issues that the entire world 
outside the confines of a quiet college 
campus is finding painfully present, 
painfully real and pressing. And yet 
these issues affect each one of us 
hire. A person who doesn't believe 
that world problems are a matter of 
critical concern in his own life is dan- 
gerously deluding himself. 

Help yourself and your college, 
then, to become more active partici- 
pants in the cause of world under- 
standing. Attend all meetings of the 
International Relations Club through- 
out the year. World peace, if it's ever 
to come, requires such participation. 
Your survival might be demanding it.

Have Saved Many Lives 



A slight word of warning to those 
students who are unfortunate enough 
to get tagged in the future: the trust- 
ees have approved a plan to set up a 
rigid fining system for automobile 
violations with all proceeds going in- 
to the state coffers. 

Thus, until something is done to 
alleviate the poor situation at these 
two dorms, the residents and their 
guests might as well make the best of 
it. They have little choice in the mat-

On behalf of the fellows who have

some action on making the thorough- 
fare for nearly 300 boys safer. In

cause of construction which blocks 
out any light from Chadbourne and

now before someone gets injured. If 
this can't be done immediately, at

freshmen opened their football sea- 
son Friday with a 6 to victory 
over the University of New Hamp- 
shire on the muddy practice field 
beside Alumni Field. The game 
wasn't a thrilling one from a spec- 
tator's point of view because of nu- 
merous penalties and fumbles due 
to the sloppy playing conditions and 
the inexperience of the players. 

After a series of punt exhanges 
in the first period, New Hampshire 
got the first scoring opportunity 
when they intercepted a lateral on 
the Mass. 18. However, they fumbled 
it back to the Redmen three plays 
later on the 16. Neither team was 
able to make a first down in the 
first quarter. 

Early in the second period the 
little Redmen got a big break when 
they recovered a bad pass from cen- 
ter on an attempted punt on the

A new method of reproducing 
photographs for publication will be 
instituted by the Cototgian next week. 

Pictures, which have heretofore 
hern engraved chemically, will now 
he reproduced on a machine which 
has been routed by hare college news 
pa)iers in the area the Amherst Stu- 
dent, the Mount Holyoke News, the 
Smith College Scan and Current, and 
the Collegian. 

The five papers will rent the mach 

ine on B cooperative basis from the 
Pairehild Camera and Instrument 


By a photo-electric process th» 

rented machine produces plastic 

"cuts" in a fraction of the time chem- 
ical engraving takes. 

Preliminary plans indicate that the 
machine will not only save money 
hut also will allow last-minute pi< 
turea to be printed. 

Prior to this, pictures have h l 

processed in Springfield, which, in al- 
lowing for delivery and engraving 
time, meant that they had to he sent 
from this office at least three days 
Ik fore publication. 

This meant that many important 
events taking place OBC or two days 
before the CoUegimn was published 
could not be covered pictorially. The 
recent problem of covering football 
games fo» the Tuesday edition ex- 
emplifies this point. 

The machine will be located at Am- 
herst College with the CoBegiem hav- 
ing access to it at all times, thus d<>- 
inir away with the problem of not be- 
ing able to cover events soon after 
they occur. 

For Rope-Pull 
Given McGuirk 

A phone call from Dean Hopkins to 
Mi. Warren McGuirk Monday, Oct. 

15, relieved the Dean's Office of all 

responsibility in the future for the 

traditional rope-pull, and gave it over 
to the athletic department, it was re- 
ported by M r. McGuirk. 

Mr. McGuirk said that he was "one 
of the most surprised men" when h ■■ 
heard over the I'.A. system last Sat- 
urday that the pull was to be indefin- 
itely postponed. On Oct. 16, the Dean 
contacted the director of athletics and 
asked that his department assume the 
responsibility. In the past, the de- 
partment's only responsibility was 
the drying out of the rope in the cage. 

Mr. Benjamin Uicci has been dele- 
gated to direct the annual event, and 
conduct it on an organized plane, ac- 
cording to Mr. McGuirk. Mr. Kicci 
explained that the pull would no Ion- 
er he just a muddle of confusion, hut 
that it would be organised to the ex- 
tent of having a Starter, a marked 
area, a starter's pistol, and i 
stop-watch to keep the event within a 
specified time limit. All these plans 
are yet in the formative stage, how- 
ever, but as many as possible will be 
incorporated into this year's rope pull 
HELD THIS YEAR, according to 
M i . McGuirk. 

If the many problems suddenly 

dropped in the lap of the athletic de- 
partment can be c o v e red in a Thurs- 
day meeting, the rope pull will take 
place this Saturday, after the Rhode 
Island game. If, however, they can- 
not be straightened out immediately, 
the event will be put off until such 
time as may be deemed advisable by 
the department to call it, said Hi 

For easier organization <»f the float parade scheduled for this 
evening, the assembly has been broken up into three groups, 

The tirst group will get in line in front of the Drill Hall Leading 
this will be two tanks. The tvst will h<> as follows: 2. The Hand;

Guest Editorial 

For the past two weeks, there lias been 8 committee from the 
state legislature visiting the campus to survey the situation in 
regard to the need for a new classroom building. It la refreshing 
to note that the politicians down in Boston have other interests 
besides their chances in the coining elections. 

The need for a new classroom building has been known by 
University officials, the members of the faculty, and the student 
body for at least the past three years. It is about time that the 
members of our legislative body realized that our state univer- 
sity is as important as any of the marvelous roads that our gov- 
ernor is so concerned with. It is rather a sad commentary on the 
state of our legislative body when they spend more money on roads 
than they do for the education of their children. Perhaps if they 
realized the growing impatience of the student body, and the num- 
ber of votes represented here, they would act much more hurriedly 
to fill a need that should have been filled years ago. 

It is also very sad to note that English classes are being held 
in the Engineering buildings, that the Romance language depart- 
ment received one teacher to take care of an increase of about loO 
students, that students are not permitted to take certain courses 
because of a lack of teachers and classroom space. It is the job 
of the student paper to represent the opinion of the student body. 

It is doing just that at this time.

Despite their loss to Williams Last 
Saturday, the varsity football U 
nally looked good. There was no com 
parison between the team that played 
last Saturday and the group of slip 
pery lingered men that played against 

This week, the honors seem to go 
to Buster Divincenzo. Buster played 
an outstanding game as he averaged 
nine yards foi every ball carry. Un- 
fortunately, his efforts went in vain 
as Kulsar and Cramer of Williams 
nullified his efforts. 

One bright spot from the game was 
the observation that Williams is go- 
ing to lose about sixteen men by 
graduation next year. Incidentally, 
a correspondent from Williams in- 
forms me that Massachusetts will bo 

playing the Ephmen again next yea!-. 
In addition, the WPI paper also 

talked about next year's game, Could

It was too had that the football 
team couldn't give Tommy Eek a 
present for the birth of his fifth child. 
At least this week, the team does not 
have to be ashamed to have lost, since

showed their crosstown rivals the 
right way to do thing! last week as 
they romped to a perfect win 1 5-48. 
The noteworthy feature was the fact 
that six Massachusetts men finished 
in a first place tie. The Rcdmen har-

for a touchdown. Freitas converted 
to make the score 7-0. Vermont fum- 
bled shortly after the kick with the 

Aggies recovering. The Aggies again 
drove down field, Freitas carried for 
the touchdown and made the conve 
sion to make the score 14-0. 

The Green Mountain Roys made 
their sole touchdown against Stock-

Ylammouth Uof M Float Parade 
Marches Through Amherst 

The largest float parade in the history of the University of 
Massachusetts aroused the peaceful town of Amherst Friday 
night as torch-bearing students cheered their way through the 
streets on the eve of the Yankee Conference game between Rhode 
Island and the Redmen. 

Strutting majorettes, battle-clad Indian warriors, and co-eds

Round Robins 
Start Greek 
Rushing Season 

Round Robins for the fraternities 
were held last Sunday afternoon from 
2-f. p.m., and Monday from <>-l(l p.m. 

The purpose of this annual affair 
is to enable the freshman to visit 
each fraternity, meet the members, 
and become acquainted with each 

Transportation was provided by 
cars from each house. The men trav- 
eled in groups of twenty, each group 
accompanied by an I.F.C. member. 

The sorority Round Robins will be 
held this weekend on Saturday, Oct. 

27 from 1-5 p.m. and on Sunday, Oct. 

28 from 1-5 p.m. and M p.m. The 
freshman women will be divided into 
three groups alphabetically, and each 
group will go at a different time. 
Seven groups of approximately twen- 
ty women will compose one of these 
main groups. Each will be accompan- 
ied by a Pan-Hellenic member. 

The Round Robins are preliminary 
to rushing, which begins officially on 
December 2. At that time, the frater- 
nities and sororities will give out bids. 

L.S./M. FT- Lucky Strike Means Fine Tobacco 

evening gowns, were all part of the 
spectacle which thrilled about 3000 

The parade was made up of 28 
floats built by the various men and 
women's groups on campus. This 
massive demonstration was led by a 
police car, two tanks, drum major- 
ettes, the band, drill team, ar.d cheer- 

Despite the fact that the football 
team had lost its last two games, 
spirit was high and competition keen. 
Top honors went to Phi Sigma Kappa 
with the theme of "Batter The 
Rams". About a dozen Phi Sigs clad 
only in loincloths braved the ele- 
ments as they mercilessly battered 
a double life-sized Ram at the head 
Of the float. 

In the co-ed class, Sigma Kappa 
won the award by rocketing the 
Rams. The float portrayed a menac- 
ing looking atomic rocket, shooting 
a Rhode Island player into outer 

Sigma Phi Epsilon and Theta Chi 
won the honorable mention in the 
men's class while Thatcher and But- 
terfield Halls were honorably men- 
tioned in the women's division. 

Judges for the event were: Prof. 
Raymond Otto, head of the univer- 
sity art department; Robert McCart- 
ney of the news department; Miss 
Mary Rafferty, art director at Am- 
herst High School 

The parade terminated at Bowker 
Auditorium which held a capacity 
crowd for the rally.

150 Attend Gala French Soiree 

To Hear Consul-General of France 

A capacity audience of over 160 
students, professors, and townspeople 
filled Old Chapel Auditorium last 
Wednesday night, Oct. 17, when M. 
Albert Chambon, Consul-general of 
Fiance and speaker at the All-Uni- 
versity Soiree de Gala, spoke on the 
current situation in France. 

M. Chambon, guest of honor, began 
his diplomatic career with service in 
China. Later he was attached to the 
Ministry of Foreign Affairs and 
served as an expert at the Iveague of 
Nations. During World War II, M. 
Chambon saw action at the front and 
was awarded the Croix de Guerre in 
1940. He then joined the liberation 
movement as chief of the information 
service. Arrested by the Gestapo in 
1044, he spent the next several 
months in concentration camps in 
Germany, finally returning to France 
in 1945 when he was appointed Con- 
sul-general to New England. 

The program opened at 4 p.m. in 
Old Chapel Seminar with Mr. Geof- 
froy Atkinson, professor of French 

at Amherst College, speaking on the 
character of Derville in Balzac'.-; 

At 7, M. and Mme. Chambon wen- 
dinner guests of the French depart- 
ment and of the French House at But- 
terfield. Immediately following M. 
Chambon's talk, a group of French 
students in costume presented a pro- 
gram of folk dancing representing 
the various provinces of France. Ma- 
rio Bruni, '53, was director of the 
dancing. Two Air Fiance movies in 
color on Paris and the Riviera were 
shown. The guests then proceeded to 
Mem Hall where a reception was held 
in honor of M. Chambon. Jane Mc- 
Brien, '52, was in charge. 

Professors Stowell C. Goding and 
Robert B. Johnson of the French de- 
partment were co-chairmen of the 
Soiree sponsored by the faculty and 
students of the Romance Languages 
department. High school students and 
their teachers from nearby towns 
were present for all events of the

friend of the speaker. 

DePaur Concert 
Scores Hit 

by Judy Broder 

Some 2,300 students and faculty 
members as well as townspeople and 
students of the neighboring colleges 
attended the DePaur Infantry Chor- 
us Concert last Thursday night in 
the Cage, and by the one standard 
we have of measuring their enthusi- 
asm, applause, were delighted with 
the performance. 

Despite uncomfortable seating ac- 
commodations, the audience begged 
the Chorus to do two encores and I 
do not doubt that they would have 
sat through a half dozen more if 
they could have prevailed upon the 
artists to comply with the wish 
which the applause implied. I have 
never enjoyed a concert more. 

This is the third time I have seen 
this group perform. Each time I see 
them, they sound hotter; so does 
"Roger Young", apparently one of 
their favorites and definitely *»ne of 
mine after hearing DePaur's ar- 
rangement and rendition. 

Their Latin American Songs are 
extremely lively and appealing. I am 
amazed at the smoothness of the var- 
iety of tunes and rhythms. Mr. De- 
Paur deserves u great deal <»f credit 
for his arrangements and for the 
discipline nf the Chorus, which is ev- 
ident by their perfect response to his 
slightest signal. A deaf person, by 
watching the director, could know 
exactly what was heard. 

The enunciation was excellent. 
Having heard "Lili Marlene" count- 
less times, I was finally able to un- 
deratand every word. The same holds 
true for the other numbers. 

DePaar seems to have overcome 
every obstacle in choral directing. 
This concert was evidence of the ex- 
cellence which can be achieved among 
singers. Every soloist had a beauti- 
ful voice, probably every man in the 
group is capable of solo work, yet 
together they bring the kind of mu- 
lk which an audience can listen to 
for hours. 

And they left their audience here 
at the right psychological moment — 
when they were still wanting mom 
I somehow think that no matter when 
they had ended the program, the au- 
dience would have been left with the 
same feeling.

Because of his background in po- 
litical science, history, and anthro-

by the United Nations to head the 
important provincial research division 
of the Trusteeship Council. 

In the early phase of UN organ-

International Relations 

At this time of international tension and unrest, an organi- 
zation on our campus, the International Relations Club, is in the 
process of strengthening" itself and its policies. By inviting prom- 
inent speakers to address the men and women, both student and 
faculty, on the current world situation, the IRC hopes to promote 
an interest and better understanding of world affairs. 

In a desire to select speakers who have information on very 
current affairs, last week the group sponsored Miss Marie Boas, 
Ph.D., of our history department who discussed Great Britain at 
precisely the time when elections are to take place in that coun- 

By a fortunate coincidence a member of our faculty was able 
to contact a friend of his who is an outstanding authority on the 
Middle East. This man, Dr. H. A. Wieschoff, a member of the 
United Nations Council, will speak for the IRC this Thursday 

Dr. Wieschoff is especially well-versed on the subject of Af- 
rica, which is of the utmost importance now that the Egyptians 
are attempting to get control of the Suez Canal at a time when 
they are in no position to support or to protect this vital link in 
our commercial and social affairs. Egypt's attempt is a threat to 
the NATO establishment, and if successful may mean a great loss 
to its member nations. 

As mature and interested citizens of the United States and 
the world, it is vital that we keep abreast with current events. 
The IRC is giving us an opportunity to learn many important 
facts about the world situation. We really owe it to ourselves to 
support this organization for in so doing we shall reap the bene- 
fits of all that it has to offer. We have everything to gain by at- 
tending these discussions. 


What arc wo going to do about 
improving school spirit? The answer 
to this question has been pondered 
over by many students on many col- 
lege campuses. Practically every col- 
lege has at one time or another been 
faced with the same problem. 

Tufts in trying to find a solution 
has eomc up with a new organization 
in the annals of its history called the 
Order of the Coffee Pot. The TufU 
Weekly says "It operates as a secret 
society to foster good fellowship and 
to promote school spirit. Its model, 
that of Rowling Green College in Ken- 
tucky, is a self-perpetuating order 
containing two members from tthe 
sophomore, junior, and senior classes. 
The society will function in absolute 
secrecy. Nobody, except Dean Kelley 
knows the identities of its members. 

"As part of its activities the Bowl- 
ing Green group distributes leaflets 
and posters about its campus on the 
eve of athletic events. It publicizes 
school and club activities in many 
and humorous ways. 

"The students continuously try to 
expose members by catching them 
in action. This game of hide and seek 
has produced among the student body 
a high fraternal spirit and has added 
immensely to the spirit of the college

"The six members of the present 
Order have been chosen by Dean Kel- 
ley for their high Tufts spirit. He is 
to be the only middle man between 
the Coffee Pots and the rest of the 
college. They are to function when 
the impulse moves them and will have 
affiliations with no other club or 
group on campus. 

"Every spring, the two senior mem- 
bers will be revealed by "The Tufts 
Weekly." The remaining members will 
select two new men from the fresh- 
man class shortly after the revelation. 
Should any man in the order be ex- 
posed before his time, he will be re- 
placed by one of his own classmen and 
will be an inactive member of the

ED. NOTE: This is the *e«md in u 
series of articles concerned with the 
workings of tthe Student Setutte. It is 
hoped that through these articles the 
student body will have a better in- 
sight into tlie many pfuu*es of campus 
life with which tlie Senate deals. 

There are 89 separate organiza- 
tions on our campus, of which 4 are 
governmental bodies, 4 honorary so- 
cieties, 12 academic activities, 22 de- 
partmental clubs, 21 special interest 
groups, 18 greek letter societies, and 
8 religious organizations. Can an un- 
dergraduate university of 2600 stu- 
dents support properly, all of these 
groups ? 

The answer to this question is ob- 
vious: no. However, the problem cre- 
ated by this situation is much more 
difficult to solve. Last year, as activ- 
ities chairman, I heard widespread 
reports of a lack of interest in many 
of our organizations. The band was 
always trying to get support for its 
concerts, the Collegian and radio sta- 
station were always shorthanded. 
These are only a few examples of a 
problem which affected almost every 
group. It is within the power and 
it is a moral obligation of the Senate 
to remedy this, but how to go about 
this is another matter. The only way 
is to reduce this number. 

At the outset you can discount the 
governmental and honorary groups. 
It would be harmful to eliminate 
anv one of these. The academic ac- 
tivities receive enough support or 
have a program worthy enough to 
justify their rxistance. There are not 
enough greek letter societies now. It 
would be intollerent to touch the re- 
ligious groups. That leaves the de- 
partmental clubs and the special in- 
terest groups. Is it fair to eliminate 
any of these groups; or rather, how 
cin anyone establish a fair system 
to reduce this number? 

If a required number of members 
were set it would either have to be 
too low to do any good, or inequities 
would result because of differences 
existing in the nature and drawing 
power of their programs. I have 
heard only one suggestion as to how 
this can be done. This idea will seem 
wild at first, but thinking about it 
for a while, you will see its merit. 
Every four years abolish all depart- 
mental clubs and special interest 
groups. If the students, and I stress 
students, not department heads and 
former advisors, have enough desire 
and interest the group would be 


will be free to operate in any reason- 
able manner and will not usurp power 
or duties of any other group.. 

"Each member of the Order will 
be given a silver charm, bearing the 
inscription "Order of the Coffee Pot- 
Founded 1858-Tufts." It will, how- 
ever, never be displayed on campus, 
except by those who may have been 

I would like to mention at this 
time that the spirit shown here this 
past week-end was wonderful. The 
student body on this campus proved to 
the football team that they were be- 
hind them 100 percent. However in 
the past, school spirit had been at a 
low ebb, and we only hope that the 
high peak reached this week-end will 
continue for the remaining games, 
especially for the one with Tufts. If 
student apathy, on the other hand, 
should return we may find it necess- 
ary to do something about it, and an 
organization such as that formed at 
Tufts may prove helpful. It is my 
opinion, however, that University of 
Mass. students will not need any cof- 
fee pot to perk them up.

started up again by these interested 
parties. If this sort of a system were 
put into effect, some of the special 
interest groups would have to be 
reclassified. Such groups as the radio 
station, the Women's Athletic Asso- 
ciation, and the Varsity "M" Club 
could not by their very nature be in- 
cluded. Departmental clubs, connected 
with national organizations also could 
not be included. 

Just a few words on departmental 
clubs. The department heads will all 
violently disagree with me at this 
suggestion. However, the only activ- 
ity engaged in by these groups (ac- 
tivities that are not carried out by 
other groups, that is) is bringing 
speakers to our campus to lecture 
about certain professions or fields. 

Couldn't this be done through de- 
partmental convocations? Why do 
these clubs, which actually serve no 
purpose that can't be handled just 
as easily through assemblies, have to 
crowd the calendar, and withdraw 
student support from other activ- 

As it is students spend much of 
their time on their major field, why 
take the time they should be spending 
on recreational activities for this 
purpose? You charge that they don't 
have to belong to the departmental 
club, but every student hates to miss 
a visiting lecturer that all the pro- 
f elisors in his major department are 
going to be raving about for weeks. 
To me, departmental clubs seem as- 
inine. Some of the programs are in- 
teresting, but they prevent a student 
from belonging to a club which will 
broaden his knowledge and experi- 

There are definitely too many or- 
ganizations competing for student 
time. Because of a crowded calendar, 
no group is receiving proper support. 
If these suggestions seem impracti- 
cal, it is because this is a difficult 
problem to solve. It is the toughest 
that our student government faces. 
There must be a solution soon, be- 
fore the activities such as our pub- 
lications, music groups, dramatics, 
and radio station are forced to cur- 
tail their programs because of a lack 
of members, support, and interest. 

Letters to the Editor 

Dear Editor: 

We are the men who led the dem- 
onstration at the Homecoming foot- 
ball game and we would like to an- 
swer that fiery editorial of yours. 
During the cheerleaders' endeavor to 
organize the fans we co-operated and 
devoted our undiminished zeal to en- 
liven our team on to victory. We bel- 
lowed the cheers at the rallies, 
screamed at the games, and drowned 
out some of our alumni and alumnae 
while striving to help our team bring 
the ball aver that goal line. Our spir- 
ited group always cheered with the 
cheerleaders and never against them; 
however I think that your editorials 
should be directed to those students 
who are busy entertaining their dates 
at the football games and just can't 
find time to squeeze in a few ve- 
hement yells for our boys on the 
field. The Freshman class is doing 
all the work, why don't the upper- 
classmen set the example?

fore there was no reason that the 
fraternity should not be aware of 
what they were because the rules 
were read, explained, and ratified by 
the Interfraternity Council, of which 
the accused fraternity is a member 
as of May, 1961. The freshmen con- 
cerned were then called to the stand 
to state the conditions under which 
they saw the lushing matter. 

John Heintz, defending attorney 
for Sigma Phi Epsilon, stated that 
the fraternity was not guilty as 
charged because Mr. Camara gradu- 
ated in 1950, and the rules have been 
changed considerably since then. He 
was not aware of the restriction. H 
also pointed out that Mr. Camara 
would not have received the rushiiv 
booklets had the fraternity realized 
that he would be enrolled in the grad- 
uate school this fall. It was also con-

In the subsequent questioning and

that a third freshman had been con- 
tacted but not summoned to the tria). 
At one point during the questioning, 
one of the freshmen stated that he 
had been requested to destroy the 
booklet by Mr. Camara. This charge 
was dropped under close cross exam-

Mr. Camara implied that his house 
was the best, while the other state! 
that the defendent spoke at great 
length about several of the houses and 
did not favor his house by any direct 

Mr. Camara, in a very detailed ac- 
count, stated that he only passed out 
the literature as an example of what 
fraternities are like. He also pointed 
out that he had tried only to be help-

Stockbridge Loses 
Cross- Country Mee1 

The Stockbridge cross country team 
lost its first meet of the season last 
Thursday to the Amherst frosh 23-37. 
Lee Chisholm, one of the stars of last 
year's University freshman team, 
easily won the 2.4 mile race with a 
winning time of 14:53.1. His running 
mate Bob Nugent finished fourth. 

Redmen Harriers 
Win 5th Straight 
Beat Williams 19-40 

Traveling up to Williams College 
for their fifth meet of the current 
season, the varsity cross-country 
team scored their fifth win in succes- 
sion to maintain their undefeated rec- 
ord. Although hampered by the loss of 
Captain Halsey Allen who has been 
sidelined at least temporarily by an 
ailing kidney, the varsity harriers 
romped to a 19-40 victory. Coach Der- 
by's winning trio of Harry Aldrich, 
Burt Lancaster and Hank Knapp cov- 
ered the 3.7 mile course in 21 :03. The 
Ephmen managed to take the fourth 
and fifth places with Banta and Wil- 
son of Williams finishing about 150 
yards behind the three leaders. How- 
ever, the Redmen finished strong as 
George McMullin, Casey Stengle, and 
George Goding finishing in the next 
three slots. 

The team will face one of their 
strongest opponents of the current 
campaign when they travel to Frank- 
lin Park to race a powerful Boston 
College team. The BC harriers lost 
their first race last week to an under- 
ated Tufts squad.

The Treadmill 

by Larry Litwack 

Now that the Redmen have finally 
played the type of game that they 
were capable of, the campus is begin- 
ning to rally behind them. The big- 
gest topic of conversation around the 
campus is about the possibility of the 
team knocking Northeastern out of 
the unbeaten class this Saturday. 

Last Saturday's game produced 
stars galore. In the backfield, Gigi 
Howland, Jack Benoit, and Buster 
DiVincenzo played their outstanding 
games of the year. Gigi was consist- 
ently called upon for necessary yard- 
age and always came through. His 
throe T.D.s testify to that. Muster 
maintained his high average of 
ground gains that he started in the 
Williams contest. Jack Benoit mixed 
his passing and running plays to keep 
the Redmen moving when the team's 
offensive drives threatened to slow 

In the line, Nobby Nolan played 
his usual brilliant brand of ball as 
he smeared the Rams plays while 
opening up big holes for the Redmen 
backs. Tony Chambers was equally 
great m he broke up many of the 
Rams end sweeps. 

The team finally broke loose. In 
addition to getting the hreaWx for 
about the first time this year, the 
Redmen started fast and were never 
stopped. If they played this type of 
game all year, we -would he undefeat- 
ed now instead of having a mediocre 
2-2 record. 

After much guessing, I finally man- 
aged to get the varsity football sched- 
ule for next year. A quick look reveals 
several surprising additions and sub- 
tractions. The Redmen are dropping 
Springfield College. Williams and 
Vermont are dropping us (Vermont 
because they claim we are subsidizing 
athletes and they are below our 
class). We are adding Brandeis, New 
Hampshire, and Connecticut to the 
varsity schedule. More about this la-

Little Indians 
Still Unbeaten; 

The U. of M. freshmen won their 
second straight game Friday, beating 
the U Diversity of Connecticut 6-0. 
The Redmen dominated the game as 
they rolled up over 250 yards by rush- 
ing while limiting the Huskies to four 
first downs. Penalties and fumbles 
cost the Little Indians two potential 
touchdown driven. 

The only score came late in the 
fourth period after the Redmen had 
stopped a Connecticut threat on their 
three. The frosh stormed back with 
a 97 yard march featured by lh.» 
passing of Frank McDermott. The 
score came on a 15 yard pass from 
McDermott to John Porter, the same 
combination that gave the team thei- 
opening victory against New Hamp- 
shire last week. 

Coach Ball was greatly please! 
with the work of both his defensive 
and offensive squads. John DiDiaso 
and I >ick Mallon got off several long 
runs, while Frank McDermott was 
outstanding in his passing as he com- 
pleted four during the touchdown 

Next Friday, the little RedsMfl will 
try to make it three straight as th.\ 
tangle with a highly rated Holy Cross 
J. V. team.

Faux Pas . . .

ieased the gates of the pond, and 
drained of!" all the surface water, so 
that the frosh went to their fate with 
the sight of one vast mud basin be- 
fore them. They talked of the differ- 
ent makes of care, trucks, and jeeps 
Used to assist the poor sophs slide 
their rivals into the muddy depths. 
They talked of the bruised tree* and 
telephone poles that were damaged 
while being used as anchor man for 
the second year muscle-men. 

One consolation of remaining tra- 
dition was the sight of those over- 
worked villains, the Maroon Key be- 
ing heaved into the muck, one at a 
time. One of the not-so-brave sights 
involved some few members remov- 
ing their hats and silently sneaking 
away from the scene of battle. 

Well, now that it's over, let's take 
a look at what is yet to come. After 
lauding the athletic department for 
the job they did with only a few days 
notice, plans are under way (through 
Mr. Benjamin Ricci) for making this 
tradition have some real meaning, as 
is done in most schools throughout 
the country. 

One of the poor points of this pull 
was the manner in which the soph 
contestants were chosen. "Any sophs 
want to join ? We need twenty more 
sophs. Are there any juniors? Any 
seniors? Any body?" 

This will all be eliminated next 
year when a selected group will pass 
physical exams before the pull. A 
suggestion to have co-eds, represent- 
ing each of the two classes, go 
through a flipping of the coin CMS* 
mony to determine which team will 
pull "uphill," is under consideration. 
A ceremony in which the losing side 
carries the rope back to the cage for 
drying has been colored by the 
thought of having co-eds of the win- 
ning crowd assist the boys via the 
paddle route. 

All these ideas are fine, but leave 
out the two main improvements that 
will need everyone's cooperation. 
First, and foremost, the pull must 
have meaning. The proper way is for 
it to be required of freshmen to wear 
their beanies until either Thanks- 
pi ving or a victory in the rope pull. 
That way, there will be that impor- 
tant purpose, or incentive, to see that 
the event is carried out competantly 
and fairly. This order would be of no 
value without rigid enforcement, how- 

The second thought, entails strict 
adherence to the rules that may be 
established. Other colleges, minus the 
fortune of having a pond, have suc- 
cessful pulls over a white line, be- 
cause the frosh have everything to 
lose, pride and beanies; the sophs 
nothing but an increase in freshman 
class and University spirit.

Campus Interviews on Cigarette Tests 


oodrow almost bit off more than he could chew 
when he tackled the cigarette tests! But he pecked 
away 'til he smoked out the truth: Such an 
important item as mildness can't be tossed off in a 
fleeting second! A "swift sniff" or a "perfunctory 
puff" proves practically nothing! He, like millions of 
smokers, found one test that doesn't leave you up a tree. 

It's the sensible test ... the 30-Day Camel Mildness 
Test, which simply asks you to try Camels as your 
steady smoke — on a day-after-day basis. No snap 
judgments! Once you've enjoyed Camels for 30 days 
in your "T-Zone" (T for Throat, T for Taste),

Senate Officers 

The result of the student Senate election of officers — ties 

>r the presidency and vice-presidency — has left us with an in- 
jnite number of questions and a limited number of conclusions. 
lince our questions far outweigh our conclusions, it behooves us 
\> place these inquiries before the student body for consideration. 

I low can two men be equally suitable for these most impor- 
itut positions on our campus? Will the president of the 1951*62 
indent Senate be a favorite by only one or two votes? On what 
(re the Senators basing their decisions when they east their votes? 

How do re-elected Senators and past Senators feel about the 
andidates for these offices; for whom are they speaking and vot- 
ig? Doesn't it seem that they should know who is the most cap- 
)le man? Since one candidate for each office is a former Sen- 
ior, are the other former Senators in favor of these men ? Here 
e have one of our few conclusions: all of the former Senators 
»ke in favor of Pehrson ; only one person spoke for each candi- 
jate for the vice-presidency, the one in favor of Audette was a 
inner Senator, the speaker for Walter was not. 

It is a shame that (to adapt a popular cliche) old Senators 
ide away because it would be interesting to discover how they 
?el about the present situation. Estimating the freshman Sen- 
iors as about j j) of the entire body, we ask who is influencing 
leir voting. 

It has been reported by reliable sources that one of the presi- 
lential candidates has been accused of trying to become a campus 
ictator (as if there were a possibility that any student could) 
y usurping all of the important offices on campus. This man is 
pgagtd in one other campus activity and holds no office in that 
[roup. His opponent, however, has several official positions on 
impus in varied activities. Granted, this proves that he is a pop- 
liar man, but what does it say for his ability to control the Stu- 
;nt Senate? Here we shall insert another conclusion: in order 
accomplish any action, the Senate must have a strong presi- 
?nt, one who can devote his time to efficiently carrying out the 
luties of this office. Were these facts taken into consideration 
hen the aforementioned statement was made? Did that obvious- 
false statement influence the decisions of freshmen and other 
>nate members who have never before participated in Senate 
•Hvities? We would conclude that it did and that it would have 
crated on us in the direction against the accused "dictator" if 
hadn't been that we knew the facts from following the activ- 
ties of most students through our work on the Collegian. 

Having posed a few pertinent questions, having inserted a 

m conclusions, and having clarified one or two points in ques- 

|on, we should like to quote from other campus publications and 

comment on the implications of unwise choices for officers of 

iportant campus organizations. 

The Baloo, University of Baltimore — "Study your candidates 
id know them well. . . For once they are in office there is little 
•u can do until the following year." A truer statement was never 
lade ; let's not regret our decisions for the rest of the year. 

The Pitt News, University of Pittsburgh — "The calamity of 
:udent elections is that it makes no difference who gets elected. 
:udent government is not a voice of the students but a football 
>r the individual candidate's prestige." 

We do not advocate such a calamity for our campus govern- 
ment; there are enough popularity contests on campus without 
laking one out of this serious election. Let's make our Senate 
xong !

New Modern Dining Hall Will Cost $800,000; 
Building to be Situated in Women's Quadrangle 

Plans and specifications for the seer 
$800,000 dining hall were completed 
last week it was announced today by 
Treasurer Robert Hawley. 

The plans call for a two-story 
building with a center section three 
stories high. Glass and brick will pre- 
dominate in construction and the 

building will be of a modernistic de- 
sign, with emphasis on simple lines. 

The ground floor will contain a 
snack bar off a terrace en the west 
side of building. The rest of the floor 
will be occupied by offices, coatrooms 
and storage space. 

The second floor will contain three 

roposed $800,000 Dining Hall Which Will Be Completed in 195? 

dining halls. A new twist in the pro- 
ject will be that each of these rooms 
will have their individual serving 
lines. Each serving line will be sep- 
arated from its particular dining 
room. One dining room will serve 250, 
so that approximately 1800 students 
can be served at each meal. 

In addition, a small third floor area 
is provided for varying groups of up 
to ISO. The largest of the three pri- 
vate rooms on this floor will seat 
about 7a. 

Treasurer Hawley reported that the 
plans had received final approval of 
the Massachusetts Public Building 
Commission. This group visited the 
ca mp u s last w«ek.

The Treadmill 




by Larry Litwark 
Once again, the male members of 
the freshman class are in the middle 
of rushing. Their life is one constant 
whirl of smokers, free meals, and 
high pressure rushing talks by the 
members of the various fraternities 
on campus. In an effort to aid the 
freshmen in making their choice wise- 
ly, there are a few suggestions that 
they would do well to heed. 

First of all let us consider the mat- 
ter of fraternity on this campus. 
Fraternity men will tell you that it 
is indispensable to belong to a frat- 
ernity. In this respect, they are com- 
pletely correct: the social life of this 
campus revolves around the Saturday 
night dances at the various frater- 
nities; the meals are much better 
than those found in our campus cafe- 
terias; but even more important, tho 
friendships formed in fraternity are 
lasting ones, much more lasting than 
the few friendships that one may 
make in a dormitory. 

You will be told that one fraternity 
is cheaper than another, that one 
house is materially better than anoth- 
er, that this chapter has . r >00 chapters 
throughout the country. You will be 
told many things in the next week. 
You will reach a point at which you 
are completely and utterly confused. 

Some of you will make a hasty choice 
simply to end the confusion once and 
for all. 

You s lould realize that joining 
a fraternity is the most serious step 
of your college career. The wrong 
choice can mean the difference be- 
tween a happy four years or a com- 
pletely miserable four years. What 
should you look for in a fraternity? 

Most important, look at the gins 
in the fraternity. You will be associa- 
ting with them for the next four 
years. You will be known as a mem- 
ber of such and such a fraternity. 
Youi- actions reflect on them just as 
their actions reflect on you. You will 
be living and eating with these men. 
Make sure that they are the type of 
men with whom you would prefer 
to be associated. 

The next thing to consider is the 
financial problems that arise when 
you join a fraternity. Make sure 
that you are completely aware of all 
charges that may be levied on you 
before you incur the expenses of a 
fraternity. Remember, every house 
on campus has some sort of arrange- 
ment for those who are not finan- 
cially well off. If the only reason 
that keeps you from joining a frat- 
ernity is lack of funds, speak to the 
men in the house in which you are 
interested. Some arrangement is 
usually possible. 

However, there is one important 
thing that you should remember. Do 
not rush into a decision. Take your 
time and make sure you have made 
the right choice. No fraternity wants 
a man who is not sure about his 
choice. If you are not sure, wait until

Letters To The Editor 


To the Editor: 

At last Tuesday night's Senate 
meeting the newly-elected Senators 
voted for their officers. The vote, as 
many know, ended in a tie for the 
positions of president and vice-pres- 

It is my honest opinion that this 
should have been no contest at all 
since the men of experience and abil- 
ity should have won without any 

As a former Senate member, I 
know what Mr. Pehrson and Mr. Aud- 
ette have done to make the Senate a 
stronger and smoother-running or- 
ganization. It is inconceivable to me 
that they should not be placed in the 
positions in which they are most 

It has been my experience that un- 
less the newly-elected Senators are 
guided by their more experienced 
members, the first semester is a total 
waste of time — time lost in gaining 

This is an appeal to the members 
of the Senate to elect officers who 
will do credit to not only the student 
body, but to the Senate itself.

To the Editor: 

It is an old tradition on the campus 
that the COLLEGIAN is notoriously 
inaccurate. However, this story seems 
to have reached some vestige of truth 
in Tuesday's edition in the float pa- 
rade story. Nowhere in the story does 
the reporter give credit where credit 
is due. The people who deserve much 
of the credit for making the rally 
one of the best in years were Shelley 
Saltman and the men who helped 
him, such as Ed Jasinski, Bud Shei- 
ber, and Dave Lamkin. These men 
worked long and hard to make the 
rally a success. They were not looking 
for credit and perhaps it is just as 
well since they got none from the 

The Collegian is supposed to re- 
port all the news. Let's see it do so 
without holding any of the facts back.

The field hockey inter-class compe- 
tition ended last week with the Soph- 
omores coming out as the victors. 
Every game was a battle and the 
girls played with their hearts and 
souls. Great spirit and good sports- 
manship were displayed by all classes. 

As always, the field hockey season 
was ended with a trip to the Univ. of 
Rhode Island. This year, however, the 
Univ. of Conn, made it a triple head- 
er. The first game between R.I. and 
Conn, ended in a 0-0 tie. Mass. won 
the second game 2-0 from the U. of 
Conns The final game R.I. came out 
on top of the U .of M. 1-0. 

The nineteen girls who were sent 
down to R.I. included players from 
all classes. These girls were chosen 

Middlesex 14; 
Berkshire 13;

How the mighty have fallen. The 
Berkshire B m b e r s , intramural 
champions for the last two years, 
have finally been beaten. The club 
that couldn't be stopped, the club 
that rolled up 33 straight games with- 
out a defeat, has been beaten. Win- 
ner in one of the year's closest 
games was a powerful Middlesex 
team, a team that has now won eight 
straight games and seems destined 
to be the new champions. 

Did the Bombers lose like champ- 
ions? Good question. Not satisfied 
with winning one game by forfeit 
on Tuesday night, the team decided 
to play Middlesex then instead of next 
Monday when they were scheduled. 

They even played without then- 
starting team. So wha' hoppen? Mid- 
dlesex 14-Berkshire B 13. Hail the 
new champions. May they reign long 
and strong.

The first half was all Amherst witli

goals in each of the first two periods

both of which came on penalty kick-..

The Press and Politics 

The Collegian has been accused in the lowest type of letter 
being unethical in printing last Friday's editorial. There has 
een nothing unethical in our stand. It is not only the privilege, 
Lit the responsibility of the editorial column of a newspaper to 
like a stand on such an issue. Here we should like to insert a few 
lentences which were written in a term paper on the subject of 
litorials. "The courage to take a stand on current problems is 
Ine of the prime needs of the editor. A neutral editor does not 
»rve the purpose. He cannot lead or drive the community to ac- 
loii if he is not brave enough to set a policy and stick to it." 

In this case the editor of the Collegian did not arbitrarily 
lecide to back Mr. Pehrson for the presidency of the Senate. We 
re not "mud-slingers" by nature, nor do we like to hear of mud 
[eing thrown at a fellow who is honestly running for an office. 
"he statement was made that Pehrson is trying to take over the 
impus, and it incensed the members of the Collegian editorial 
oard, who petitioned the editor to write that editorial in Pehr- 
dd'i defense. 

The editor of the Collegian had no intention of interfering 
this matter until the aforementioned statement was reported 
us by our Senate reporter. 
We were originally not of a mind to favor either candidate. 
[owever, when we were advised that it was about time that the 
"ollegian took a stand, we decided to favor the experienced Sen- 
iors who, in our opinion (which we have every right to expound 
this column whether or not some people are intelligent enough 
o realize it), are the most capable men for the offices. This is our 
hand and we are determined to go to all lengths to stick to it. The 
'ollegian is a free and responsible press! Yes free, and we cannot 
ie intimidated by all the dirty politics and juvenile, insinuating 
rttera from here to Turner's Falls and back. 

Here I have a few words for Mr. Litwack. To date only a 
andful of the three thousand students have expressed their opin- 
bnfl on the political issue at hand. Surely you don't consider these 
m "everybody". I have already stated the ethical fitness of the 
Collegian's stand and have no need to say more about that. As 
ft your insinuation that the editorial board did not agree with 
mr stand, Mr. Litwack, get the facts or the facts will get you. 
I'e regret, concerning our so-called biased viewpoint, that we 
ere so subtle. It is detrimental to our publication to receive let- 
?rs like Mr. Goldberg's which criticize our lack of firm convic- 

So Mr. Litwack thinks that the freshmen are looking to the 
[ollegian for a non-partisan viewpoint? Well, if the Senate dis- 
lussion had remained "clean", the Collegian would also have 
Itayed out of the picture. How can we be expected to give a clear 
jicture to a group of students who are laboring under such a 
ilae idea as these unsuspecting freshmen who were betrayed at 
ie last Senate meeting? When a man speaks in favor of a can- 
lidate, he is supposed to present positive facts in favor of his can- 
jidate, not untrue or defamatory statements about his opponent. 
Now let's take a look at Mr. Litwack's harsh critique of our 
ist editorial. In your first critical paragraph, you made your 
Irst mistake. We did not say that only one man was capable, we 
|sked if two men were equally suitable. And since when have only 
wo men been running for the office of President of the United 

Unfortunately (for you), you put your foot in it again in 
paragraph 2. We definitely stated that all of the past senators 
|p'«ke in favor of Pehrson. There are five of them, which equals 
[if your knowledge of elementary mathematics serves us correct- 
y) four more than one. None of these men spoke against Mr. 
Llintuck, they simply presented the facts of Mr. Pehrson *s ex- 
perience and activity on the Senate last year.

Queen For Hort Show 

To Be Chosen Thursday 

3616 Students at UM; 
Co-ed Enrollment Up 

The number of coeds in the undergraduate college has in- 
creased from 787 in October 1950 to 1004 at present, and the total 
enrollment of the University has hit 3616 students, a report from 
the Office of Publications on registration revealed recently. 

Approximately half of the 3015 undergraduates are majors 
in Liberal Arts and Science, the report showed, with the School 

of Engineering being tin- largest prn- 

The first of many campus queens 
will reign over the annual Horticul- 
ture Show, Nov. 1, 2, and 8. 

The queen will be chosen on Thurs- 
day evening at 6:30 in the Cage by 
all students participating in the 
show. Her name will be announced 
on Friday evening when she an! 
her two attendants begin their week- 
end reign. 

Each course having a display at 
the show nominated two girls as 
candidates for the queen. The girls 
and the organizations sponsoring 
them are: Aboriculture, Freddie 
Dole and Jane Hartman; Line Turf, 
Janice Anderson and Jean Stringer; 
Floriculture, Mar.jorie Alden and 
Phyllis Sears; Forestry, Judith San- 
ders and Barbara Gates; Food Tech- 
nology, Sally Marsh and Mary Gran- 

In relation to fraternity, one can- 
didate has used his fraternity to 
"push" him as well H knock the 
other fellow, just as bad, if not 
worse, than some fraternity rushing. 
In regard to personal relations, any 
editorial that raises such questions 
as has the Collegian's stand, are 
brought to the policy board for ap- 
proval. Indirectly, such was the ac- 
tion in this instance, with Richard 
Hafey, Executive Editor and chair- 
man of the Policy Board, giving final 
approval. I am sure that Mr. Hafey 
has taken out neither of the candi- 

This column was originally planned 
to be humorous, but this Senatorial 
farce has taken on more than a funny 
face; like the opposition, it's pathetic. 

The reason, as I see it, for the 
stand, is to wake up the students as 
to the growing danger of not investi- 
gating the things they hear. Before 
you make a decision, look carefully 
into, under, and through all super- 
ficial implications. The reason that 
even alumni have taken such an in- 
terest is apparently an indication 
that, even though they are no longer 
directly concerned with this specific 
incident, they are not content to see 
such a farce continue. 

What kind of retalliation can or 

has to be offered in defense of a stand 

taken to clarify the issues involved

EDITORIAL: Continued from page 1 

Paragraph 'd shows that you are completely confused. We 
did not say a word about the senators who have not been re- 
elected. There is a question as to how many of them ran for re- 
election. There is no need to question their ability to testify to the 
capabilities of the re-elected Senators. Regardless of whether or 
not they were re-elected, they have had the opportunity to ob- 
serve the action of the men who were re-elected and can certainly 
five pertinent information. 

We have stated above that our "reliable source" was our 
jwn reporter. 

We felt no need to enumerate the activities of the two can- 
didates since the question was not one of their versatility but one 
of the right of a Senator to make an accusation against the integ- 
rity of another Senator. 

Although this editorial is becoming longer and longer, we 
shall continue in order to get all the facts before the student body 
80 that there will be no complaints. Among our letters to the edi- 
tor was one which was signed by a boy who knew nothing about 
such a letter having been written. Is this why the Collegian should 
remain impartial? The letter was "loaded" with cryptic comments 
against the Collegian and also included several statements which 
were unadulterated libel. We are missing our deadline because 
our office is like Grand Central Station with people coming in and 
out of here to remove their names from letters to which they 
have found out their signatures were affixed without their know- 
ledge. These have been letters against the Collegian and our stand 
on the current issue. 

We have passed the point where we feel obliged to make any 
apologies for our past action unless we s;.y that it was not strong 
enough. It is about time that people stop] sd to think before mak- 
ing rash statements. The Collegian would not go out on a limb for 
anyone or any principle without first Dei g certain that its view 
was fair in the face of all the facts. We now what We are talk- 
ing about which is more than many of ur fellow-students can 
say. It wv make a statement, we have p of behind it. We have 
not resorted to any false statements, mi Islinging. or libel. 

To paraphrase a statement of Dr. S; uiel Johnson, we shall 
close by saying that we are not obliged » provide you with an 
understanding but we can provide you with an explanation. 

Letters To he Editor 

1 ear Editor: 

After reading the last issue of the 
Collegian, I just couldn't help but 

write this Idler. As you know, I was 
extremely i nterest ;ie.| in the Sei 

aa an undergraduate ami as an alum- 
I still am. 

During my two terms as president 

o!' the senate, 1 had numerous oc- 

casions t<» work with Mr. Pehrson as 
tinman of the Election Committee 

and chairman of the Finance Com- 
mittee. Without reservation I can 
truthfully say Mr. Pehrson <ii»l both 

jobs m a most remarkable manner. 

He was hard working and efficient, 
and most of all he was dependable. I 

cannot stress too much these qualities 
which the President of the Senate 

•aid, or rather lues to possess. 

The main facto . I think, in choos- 
ing this year's president should be ex- 
perience. Tile president of the Senate 
needs a thorough understanding of 
parliamentary procedure, he must ful- 
ly comprehend the student Constitu- 

tion, he must know the development 

of the Senate, the mistakes made and 
the honor won. All this is necessary 
for the proper guidance of the Senate 
as a body. 

There is only one way to train such 
knowledge and that is practical ex- 
perience as a Senator, and as a com- 
mittee may. 

I think it would he detrimental to 
this Senate to overlook Mr. Pehrson. 
He has the experience, he has the 
capacity for work and is very depend- 

In closing I would also like to say 
that all said above is applicable to 
Mr. Audett I worked with Mr. Aud- 
ette foi two years on the Senate a? 1 
1 feel that he too possesses the qual- 
making a good Senate officer. 

Sincerely yours

Dear Editor, I wish to congratulate 

you for taking a definite stand on a 
campus political issue. It is about 
time that the Editor of the CoUagian 
realized that the editorial column is 
00 place to ko pUSSy-footing through 
the issues at hand. The place for 
news is in the news articles; the 
place for opinions is in the editorial. 
This is the first time that I can re- 
member a definite political policy be- 
ing adopted and proclaimed through 

the I'ullt <jiun. 

The one fault that I found in the 
editorial was the subtlety used by 
the Editor. In future editorials, why 
not have firm enough convictions to 
present them without disguise? 

Paul Goldberg '52 

Dear Editor, 

Although not a member of the Sen- 
ate last year, I attended the majority 
of the Senate meetings. At all of 
these meetings I was aware of the 
interest and enthusiasm Hob Pehrson 
showed concerning all Senate affairs. 
There was hardly a plan or proposal 
which he did not have some definite 
opinion. I always felt that Bob was 
the type of person who would stick 
to something and see it through to 
its best conclusion, and my opinion 
of him has not changed in the year 
that I have known him. When I 
heard that he had been re-elected to 
the Senate I was pleased to see that 
the students had recognized his in- 
terest, experience, and ability. Now 
I read that he is running for Presi- 
dent of the Senate, and I certainly 
hope that this energetic, enthusiastic 
Senator will be given the position for 
which he is so well trained and so 
perfectly suited. 

As the Collegian said last week, 
"we favor experience", and in this 
case that means Bob. 
Francine Freedman '54 

To the Editor: 

In view of the past action of the 

Collegian in reference to Senate elec- 
tions and the obvious bias in several 
of the articles appearing in the last 
week, we, the undersigned, with no 
intention of being official spokesmen 
for the groups we are connected with, 
feel that we should express our opin- 
ions on the matter. We completely in- 
dorse Arthur Al in tuck for president 
of the Senate for the following reas- 

1. Mr, Alintuek's work on the In- 
tcrfraternity Judiciary Board was of 
an excellence seldom achieved in the 

2. Mr. Alintuek's work on Winter 
Carnival publicity last year revealed 
a meat aptitude for both work and 

B. We feel that Mr. Alintuck will 
stand up for the rights of the stud- 
ents against all opposition. 

1. Mr. Alintuek's membership on 
the varsity track squad proves 
at ility. 

5. Mr. Alintuek's leadership qual- 
have been shown in every cam- 
pus activity that he has participate,] 

For the above reasons, and many 
more, we not only support Arthur 
Alintuck for president, but we hope 
that the members of the Student Sen- 
ate will not make a mistake and put 
into office the Wrong man for the job. 
Let's make the Senate strong, rather 
than what it has been in the past.

Lear (if we may use the term loose- 
ly) Editor: 

Although we must admire the sub- 
tlety of your editorial in the last 
issue, we must disagree with the 
policies used therein. Since when has 
the Collegian gone out on a limb for 
anyone and become a political tool 
through which you express your per- 
sonal opinions. Your editorial, to 
which you gave an unnecessary 
front page spread, was completely 
unwarranted. The ubiquity of your 
article left us dumbfounded. You 
claim, in your editorial, that "we 
know the facts from the following 
activities of most students through 
our work on the Collegian." If this 
be so, why did you not release these 
so-called facts to the student body, 
since it is the primary purpose of 
a campus newspaper to reveal all of 
the facts in a strictly non-partisan 

The obsequious manner you dis- 
played towards one of the presiden- 
tial aspirants was almost as flag- 
rant as the disdain shown the other. 
Bias is (i luarsh taonl, hat it is quite 
ap ro pos to tha situ/ition. 

Return the Collegian, once again, 
to the students, and make it truly 
"A free and responsible press."

To the Editor: 

"Something is rotten in the state of 
Denmark" Act I Scene IV Hamlet. 

In view of the fact that everyone 
(dse on this campus feels that they 
are qualified political experts and 
have seen fit to express their opin- 
ions in print, I feel that it is about 
time that I started a little writing 
about some of the things that have 
occurred to me since the last issue of 
the Collegian. 

Since the start of the campaign 
there have been charges and counter- 
charges by both parties with neither 
one resorting to facts to prove their 
charges. However, there are some 
questions that could be raised in re- 
gard to the campaign until last Fri- 

First, is it ethically correct for the 
campus newspaper to take a stand on 
a political issue on this campus? 
Never before in the history of the 
Collegian has it come out in favor of 
any one candidate for any office. Yet. 
in the middle of one of the hottest 
races seen on campus in a long time, 
the editor of the paper, supposedly 
backed by the members of the edit- 
orial board, saw fit to present a com- 
pletely biased viewpoint in her edit- 

The freshmen on this campus are 
supposed to be able to turn to "their 
campus newspaper for the complete 
facts about anything, and they should 
be able to expect a non-partisan view- 
point on which to make their judg- 
ment. By turning to politics, the Coll- 
egian has betrayed the ethical trust 
placed in it and its members by the 
student body. It is true that the con- 
stitution of the Collegian permits the 
editor to take a stand on campus is- 

sues. But this still does not answ* 
the charge of ethics. It is no long, 
become a case of the best man wi:j 
ning, It has become a case as to whicl 
candidate knows the top people on t 

Now, lot us turn to the editorial (J 
the front page of Friday's issue . 
the Collegian. Let us examine this edl 
torial with a very critical eye to sJ

1. How can two men be equal 
suited for these two most importarl 
positions on our campus". This state] 
ment shows a complete lack of under- 
standing. The highest office in ou| 
country has two men competing for 
every four years. Does this mean tlu 
only ore of the two men is capable 

2. "How do past senators feel abmj 
the candidates". This question musj 
remain unanswered since up to la- 
Friday, only one past senator ha: 
committed himself on the issu- 
Therefore how can the writer use thj 
plural when only one man has state j 
his opinions?

If these men had enough judgment t|

4. "Reliable sources." The editij

ing their activities through the Ooi\

posed to be a student newspaper, :\

opinions that they gather from the&j 

The- basic issue at hand seems to bJ 
whether or not the Cetleffimn shouii 
enter campus politics. My personJ 
opinion is that there- has been a la 
of ethics on the part of the- Collegia! 
I feel that they have- betrayed th-j 
trust placed in them when they we-ij 
elected to their offices. The Collegian] 
has proven that the-y were better oi 
by not getting an Increase in fundi 
last year. Until they can restore th-j 
student's faith, they will novel- get th-j 
Increase they are still looking for.

aptain Jack Benoit was intercept- 
ed on the Mass. 37, and 4 plays later 
"onnolly scored again. The game 
was only 5 minutes old, but North- 
[•astern led 14-0. 

The Redmen came light back. 

»oel Reebenacker passed twice, once 

jt i Chambers and the other to Con- 

|way and U Mass. was on NU's 34 

yard line. Three fumbles set the 
lEckmen back on their own 42, where 
[Northeastern took over. Early in the 
Isecond quarter, U Mass. had another 
|scoring chance. A bad pass from 

center on an attempted fourth down 
Ipunt, gave Mass. the ball on the 

Northeastern 38. The Rednu-n moved 
the- ball to the- 11, but a fumble gave- 
the- ball back to the Huskies. An- 
other I' Mass. fumble late in the 
quarter set up Northeastern's final

was gooel for 12 yards and the- score, 
and at the half Northeastern leel

el rive was a Reebenacker to Cham- 
bers pass good for 31 yards. After 
forcing Northeastern te> punt, Mass-

down of the game. A 70 yard scor- 
ing march was highlighted by the 
running of T«'el Fiers. Piers took 
the ball 9 times on the drive and 
racked up 48 yards, one run Wing 
good for 20 yards. On the opening 
play of the final quarter Piers 
scored from the one yard line. The- 
Redmen controlled the ball for the

eaten By H.C. 

The U. Mass. freshmen lost their 
Ifirst uame of the season, 19-12, to 

the- Holy Cross JV's at Alumni 
ll'ield. It was a rough, wide-open 

game fe-atureel by the passing of Joe 
JBuderwita and Frank McHerrmett. 

The- affair Included two H. C. injur- 
numerous penalties, fumbles, 

five or six pass interceptions, three 

blockeel punts, and two abortive fist- 
I fights, 

The little Reelmen got off to a 
fast start, racking up 12 points in 
the first period; but after that were- 
-•inped by a much heavier and more 
experienced Crusader eleven. 

The Redmen scored quickly, after 
overing a fumble on the H. C. 
.ii the first play from scrimmage. 
A line- plunge netted 3 yards, the-n 
Frank McDerrmett unlimbered his 
pitching arm and toased a t.d. strike 
to Dick Mallon. 

H. C. picked up one first down af- 

te>r the Miming kickoff. the-n fum- 
bled again on their 44. A line buck 
picked up a yard for the- Re-dmen, 
then McDerrme-tt faked a p ass and 
raced to the 23 for a first down. On 
the- ne-xt play he shot through tackle 
to go all the way, making the scoie 
read 12 to <>. 

Following the next kickofT, Jack 
Hamilton raced f>9 yards on a pitch- 
out to score for H. C; but the play 
was nullifie-el by an otTsiele- penalty. 
The Redmen then blocked a punt on 
their 41, but lost the ball on a wild 
pitchout on the 31. Afte-r one run- 
ning play, Joe Buderwitz tossed a 
pass to Jay Shapely on tin- K>, then 
tosseel him another for the touch- 
down. The e-xtra point attempt was 

In the second period the Crusaders 
blockeel a Mass. punt on the Red- 
i men's .'52. Hamilton got a first down 
on the 13, Buderwitz was knocke-d 
down on the 2(»; then he pitche-d a 
touchdown pass to Hamilton. Ed 
Ney booted the e-xtra point to give 
H. C. a 13-12 lead.

A Tribute 

Charles N. DuBoifl, late professor at the University of Massa- 
chusetts and yearbook adviser to the Western Massachusetts 
League of School Publications for the last three years, succumbed 
to a heart attack this summer. In the death of Professor DuBois 
the league has lost a valuable member of the advisory board. He 
gave hours of his time to the judging of the yearbooks and his 
constructive criticism of the essay and art work in the books and 
his interest in young people stimulated the league members to 
higher achievement. Professor DuBois crowded into his short 
career more than many men accomplish in the biblical three score 
years and ten.

Collegians For Commuters 

The problem of providing copies of the Collegian for commu- 
ters is not a new one. It comes up at least once a year. 

Copies of every edition of this newspaper are left in Memo- 
rial Hall for the exclusive use of the commuters. However, no 
matter how often we remind them, the students who live on cam- 
pus persist in taking the papers from Mem. Hall. As a result of 
this action on the part of these campus residents, the commuters 
do not gt 't the Collegian, but the Collegian gets complaints. 

The entire matter, in our opinion, is one of personal integrity. 
Campus residents should realize that they are not to take the 
papers which are provided for the commuters. There are enough 
copies left at the dorms and houses on c impus so that everyone 
can obtain one for himself. 

In all fairness to the commuters. w> suggest that campus 
residents wait those extra few minutes until they get back to 
their dorms to read the Collegian. YOU cr 1 always find a copy in 
the dorm, but some commuter will be let' without his only way 
of learning what is taking place on campu . 

Let's consider the commuters. They rre as much a part of 
the campus as any of us. They pay for tin Collegian and are en- 
titled to receive it. The co-operation of every student on campus 
is the only solution to this problem. 

Letters to the Editor 

Dear Editor: 

Something should be dona about 
the distribution ot the i'ollejiian to 
all the commuters. We commuters 
never receive tho papers which wo 
have paid for. We feel it is important 
to us as commuters to obtain this 
paper as we don't have much 
contact with the students in the dorms 
who can learn all the news through 
bulletin boards. The Collegian is the 
one source by which wo learn Tvhat 
.vents are on campus and the news 
events which take place. 

We realise any solution would prob- 
ably mean more work for either the 
Collefjiaa staff or some of the com- 
muters. We suggest that some solu- 
tion be reached by both parties that 
will enable just the commuters to 
receive their I'ollcjrians in Mem. Hall 
and put a stop to the students living 
on camput taking them since they 
have their own at the dorms.

St ■>■ Editorial. 

Dear Editor: 

BaVS you ever been to Chicago, to 
the cattle purchasing in the stock- 
yards? Here is what occurs. The 
livestock is led about in a large pen, 
the buyers appraising them, and are 
finally sold, their physical attributes 
being their sole claim to monetary 
merit. I saw a similar occurance at 
Bowker Tuesday morning, October 
30, when OUT sex-starved ROTC boys 
sssembled to project their repressed 
secretions of erotic imagery upon a 
group of pirls who happened to have 
been born with potentially attractive 
bodies. The large pen was exchanged 
for a Stage, the money for ballots, 
but the livestock was led out the 
"buyers" appraised their physical at- 
tributes (sometimes quite volubly) 
the blue ribbons were awarded. 
■e young men, apparently suf- 
fering from an acute lack of wild- 
cat sowing, attach an undue amount 
Importance to the physical ap- 
pearance of a young lady; this des-

Having heard many upperclass- 
men say, "If only I had joined ac- 
tivities when I was a freshman," I 
thought it might be interesting to 
quote an article found in the Bos- 
ton College Heif/lits. 

"Towards the end of the year, 
students will begin to bemoan the 
fact that they did not join any 
extra-curricular activities. The 
hours spent sitting ai-ound the 
'caf, chewing over already well- 
chewed topics; unfairness of teach- 
ers, unfairness of teachers, unfair- 
ness of teachers, etc., will flash be- 
fore their eyes. Naturally all of us 
enjoy relaxing in a bit of idle con- 
versation over a cup of coffee now 
and then, but some people carry it 
to an extreme. These are the char- 
acters who, at the end of the year, 
ask. why no one 'dragged' them to 
an activity. 

"Again, now is the time to begin 
making 1951-52 a successful school 
year by joining and actively parti- 
cipating in some clubs. The clubs of- 
fer many benefits to members. The 
friendships and self-expression de- 
veloped in the clubs are permanent 
things, remembered long after verbs 
and generals are forgotten."

Redmen Face Vermont; 
Seek Third Win of Season 

The University of Massachusetts Redmen travel to Burling- 
ton, Vermont, tomorrow, to meet Vermont in a Yankee Conference 
game. Vermont is having one of its worst seasons in its 50 year 
history. They have not won a ball game all season, and they have 
jcored but two touchdowns. Half of the Vermont team lias never 
played varsity ball prior to this season, and it looks like the Red- 
men will nave an easy time tomor- 

Intramural Ball 
Moves To Finals 

The intramural football teams 
moved into their final week of play 
with a full schedule planned. Only 
one team in both leagues has gone 
through this season so far without a 
defeat. SAK, in League A, has rolled 
up 174 points to 52 for the opposition 
while collecting an 8-0 record. 

In League B, Middlesex and Berk- 
shire B are once again battling it out 
for the lead. Each has suffered one 
loss, Middlesex losing to Brooks A, 
and Berkshire B losing to Middl. s<\. 
The standings: 

League A 


The Redmen will take the field 
without the services of defensive half- 
back Hilly Rex. Rex received a frac- 
tured cheekbone in the Northeastern 
rejne and he is through for the sea- 
sen. Much time has been spent in 
practice this week seeking a replace- 
ment for Rex. In the opinion of the 
coaching staff, Rex has played some 
of the best defensive work at half- 
hack that has been seen here in 
years. The search for his replacement I 
has centered around Don Junkins, Bob 
Equi, and Frank Jacques. 

A new addition to the varsity squad 
is freshman Frank McDermott. Mc- 
Dermott has played great ball for the 
freshmen, and Coach Tommy Eck has 
moved him up to the varsity in an 
effort to bolster the passing attack 
of the Redmen. Passing has been the 
keynote of the practice sessions this 
week. In the past four games the Red- 
men have completed only 31 passes 
in 75 attempts. 

Tomorrow's game with Vermont 
will be the last for some time to 
come. Vermont is dropping UMass. 
from its schedule, and it is reported 
that Vermont is dropping out of the 
Yankee Conference. Let's give the 
boys from the Green Mountain State 
something to remember us by. 

Varsity Hoopsters 
Called Out 

Led by Captain Bill l'revey, the 
varsity basketball team has been 
practicing for two weeks in antici- 
pation of their forthcoming 22 game 
Schedule, which opens December 8 
with Northeastern. The team is out 
to improve last year's <>-l. r > record 
and the prospects are high for a 
successful season. 

Captain l'revey is the main cog 
in the team. Other men who will lie 

playing prominent parts in this 

year's team are Ed White and Hen- 
ry Mosychuk at forwards, and Ber- 
nie Kaminski and Malcolm Macleod 
a' guards. This appears to be the 

starting five: Bill Stevens, Chippy 
Morgan, Ray Gunn, and Art Bar- 

retl will be COIinted on for the re- 
serve strength. 25 candidates are 
oat for the squad and Coach Ball 
will have a tough time cutting.

Isn't :i strange bow ■ holiday 

that used t<> mi an BO much to us as 
children .-lips by almost, unnoticed 
when we pass the "trick or treat" 
stage? Remember how much fun it 

used to be to lin^ the neighh- 
doorbells Oil Halloween and run'.' 

Did you ever wait till the unsus- 
pecting occupants answered the 
ring and then saucily heave a hand- 
ful of Hour at them? Or were you 
one who tried to get revenue on th 
little demons who cut your clothes 

line, emptied your garbage can, and 
soaped your windows? Somehow or 
other they always managed to avoid 
any t rap set for them. 

Remember when, laughing fiend- 
ishly to yourself, you attached the 
garden hose to the kitchen faucet 
and sat up to wait for the clothes- 
line cutter who had visited your 
hack yard for the past five years? 
N'o doubt you found yourself sitting 
up all night without even so much 
as a t race of a victim. But lo and 
behold, the clothesline was in two 

pieces the next morning! 

Yes, Halloween is fun, hut it 
seems to he a holiday that is cele- 
brated only by the younger genera- 
tion. From all reports, the attempt 
a group of freshmen girls made to 
revive the "ghost and goblins" when 
they draped themselves in sheets and 
they descended upon an unsuspect- 
ing house mother was not appreciat- 
ed. Perhaps the reason was that it 
was after lights out!

they were still ollicers of their clas>. 
As it turned out, the vote margins 
which Pehraon and Audette had 
over Alintuck and Walters, were 
enough to dispel any doubts about 
the results. 

Senator Hardy brought up the 
question of by-laws. He was in-

According to Mr. Van Meter's no- 
tice, the Board of Trustees of the 
University has authorized the sched- 
ule of fines, and Treasurer Hawhy 
reported that the money will go into 
the General Fund of the Common- 
wealth of Massachusetts. The only 
way the money can be returned to 
the V Diversity is by a legislative ap- 
propriation, according to Mr. Haw- 

Mr. Van Meter expressed the 
thought, "It is our sincere hope that 
no student will have to pay such a 
fine at any time. The University of 
Massachusetts does not want to in- 
flict upon you an undue hardship."

The University Chorale, directed by 
Doric Alvisni, has recently established 
a rating system which is intended to 

encourage the members to retain their 
present rating while striving to reach 
the next highest. Used in mar.y chor- 
al ■ groups, the rating is ba 
range, potential dynamics, character 
of vocal tone, ability to sine an in- 
dividual part without assistance, 
knowledge of tb* repertoire, attitude. 
promptness, attendance, and 
and concentration during rehearsal 
and performance. 

The group ia now under the co- 
managership of Dorothy Swift and 
Jim Patterson. It is expected that be- 
cause of the need for frequent coor- 
dination between men and women, 
such a move will insure smoother 
functioning: within the organizatioi . 

Plans for a very active year are 
now in the making. The Chorale will 
appear at the First Church in North- 
ampton. Nov. 2'). For the first time 
they will present S Chorale ballet, 
"Story of a Princess", based OH 0*- 
ear Wilde's. "Spanish Infanta". The 
ballet will be somewhat theatrical in- 
cluding stage, lights, costumes with 
the Chorale singing in the background 
SS Rob Roland and Mary Lowry dance 
the Story. The Chorale will appear or. 
the Monsanto Series, "Songs from 
New England CoHegea", Dec 9. 

A concert tour is being arranged 
for early spring during which the 
Chorale will travel to New York.

Orchids To You 

Congratulations are in order for the excellent work done by 
the students on the Horticulture show. More than twenty-one 
thousand spectators viewed the mammoth exhibition in spite of 
rain, SHOW, and sleet. 

The students who put on this annual show do more to gain 
publicity for the University than any other similar student organ- 
ization on campus. Each year the show draws an increasing num- 
ber of visitors. It should be appreciated that this is what the Uni- 
vergjty needs, thousands of people being interested in what is go- 
ing on at our campus. 

Several hundred students with faculty assistance pool their 
efforts and talents to present to the public one of the largest and 
most successful shows of its kind in the country. It is one of the 
major campus events which is open to the public free of charge. 

Using the theme of the United Nations, the students were 
able to add even more color to the show than that furnished by 
the beautifully displayed flowers and plants. This was done by dis- 
playing the multi-colored Hags of the members of the UN, and 
by constructing a huge colorful world globe. Besides the main 
exhibition, were the usual small exhibitions of the students. They 
ranged from 'The World Of Fantasy", to very formal ideas. 

Perhaps, one of the most difficult things for the students to 
accomplish is to put together a show which will compare favor- 
ably with the shows of other years. Most people come with high 

We may well be proud of our Ilortic llture Show, and of the 
many students who have worked BO hard to make it the success 
that it has become.

Hold That Li le 

We almost felt that we should put th' editorial on page one 
since page one editorials are the only one: vhich seem to arouse 
much enthusiasm and interest around hen. Thinking better of it, 
how t\ er, we decided that perhaps our word >f wisdom could serve 
the purpose on page two and left them lire. 

The editor of the Collegian has been tailed upon in Letters 
to the Editor, to solve all sorts of problems from arranging a new- 
system for fraternity and sorority rushing to devising a satisfac- 
tory method of presenting queens to the UOTC. A problem was 
presented to us some weeks back concerning the excessive "cutting 
in" in the lines at Draper. We hesitated to make any editorial 
comment at the time, feeling that the students who read the letter 
would be moved to the proper action. This was not the case. 

The mature and responsible students here at the University 
are apparently addicted to finding the easiest way out, regardless 
of whom they are hurting. We are all eager to get our meals. "We" 
includes every person in the line — the one who got there an hour 
early and waited patiently for the line to begin, as well as the one 
who got there in the middle of the meal. It may be true that a 
friend in need is a friend indeed, and what better chance to prove 
this friendship than when your buddy is dying of starvation? 
But why not stop to think of the fellow in back of you? 

Those who have any personal integrity do not need this ad- 
vice. We urge the others not to put their friends on a "spot" by 
asking them to open up the line. 

Letters to the Editor 

To the Editor: 

During th« pait weeks, I have giv- 
en tarns Mrioui thought to what I 
consider a serious problem on this 
campus, I am referring to fraternity 
and sorority rushing. Most of you 
who arc reading this letter are al- 
ready familiar wiili the present set- 
up; but for the benefit of those who 
arc not, I'll run over it briefly. 

N'o freshman can be approached re- 
garding fraternities or sororities un- 
til the official rushing period has 

. This usually - ls ii did tlii.^ 

year, around the end of October, At 
that time, Sound Robins are conduct- 
ed by the I. V. end Pan-hell Councils 
to acquaint the freshmen with the lo- 
cation ami appearance of the differ- 
ent houses. Fraternity rushing then 
officially begins and "open season" is 
declared on the fivshmen. The frater- 
nities are given a period of about two 
weeks to meet the freshmen, and not 
to know them, usually accomplished 
by smokers and Inviting the freshmen 

to avail themselves of all the advan- 
tages of the fraternity houses, such 
81 meals, dances, etc. The freshmen 
are then piven a 2-1 hour period of 
silence by the fraternities; a "breath- 
er spell" in which to make their 
choices. At the end of this time. 
Pledge Chapel is held, wherein the 
frosh receive their bids and are 
pledged to the houses of their choice. 
After their Round Robins are held, 
the sororities still have to wait about 
a week before they get a chance to 
rush the freshmen girls. At this time 
they run a scries of teas for the same 
purpose as the fraternities' smokers. 
They too, have a Pledge Chapel at 
the close of rushing. This is the pres- 
ent Rushing set up— one designed to 
handle the small number of freshmen 

who entered in previous years, How- 
ever, with the advent of the so-called 
"bigger and better" freshmen classes, 
this system just doesn't seem to func- 
tion properly. 

There ate several very valid argu- 
ments that have presented themselves 
to me against this system. First of 
all — the length of the rushing period. 
In the case of the fraternities, it is 
only 12 days long; sororities get a 
mere 4 days to make their choices. 
It seems scarcely possible, to me that 
the Greeks can meet all the fresh- 
men, and get to know them intimate- 
ly enough to decide upon their qual- 
ifications for membership in that 
short time. Conversely, it is equally 
impossible for a freshman to visit 
all the houses he would like to, and 
acquaint himself with them well 
enough to make his decision. I don't 
think that it is possible for anyone 
to knmv a person intimately enough 
to pass judgment on him in so short 
a period of time. 

Moreover, it seems to me, although 
I may be mistaken, that the rushing 
period for some strange reason al- 
ways seems to coincide with the per- 
iod chosen by the faculty for the first 
hour exams of the semester. I know- 
that I, personally, had four exams 
during rushing this year, and some 
of my f ternity brothers had seven. 
This in itself presents no small 
problem, since attendance is usually 
required at rushing smokers and 
other functions. But exams also re- 
quire time for study: there just isn't 
enough time available for both. One 
or the other must suffer. It isn't fair 
from the freshman's point of view- 
either. He wants to attend these func- 
tions, for they aid him in makinjr his 
decision; yet, he too, has to study, 
often much more than an upperclass- 
man. for his exams. 

Also, many false impressions are 
given and received, both to the fresh- 
men and the Greeks, because of the 
hectic atmosphere of the rushing per- 
iod. Many a worthy freshman has 
been passed by because he was too 
shy or too afraid to assert himself 
during rushinp. Also, many mistakes, 
faux-pas and blunders are made 
which, in the heat and excitement of 
rushing, can. and have, led to inter- 

and intra- house dissensions and ar- 
guments. Many feuds and rivalries 
have begun because someone with per- 
fectly honorable and earnest inten- 
tions, said or did the wrong thing; 
and the situation wasn't rectified in 

However, all these faults can be 
done away with very easily. I am 
not about to propose a hare-brained 
me which I dreamed up in a mo- 
ment of weakness. The plan I am 
going to pn pose !■ on,, which is in 
use today or, i iany campuses all over 
the country, with freshman elai 
(•ven larger than ours. It is simply 
this: Wide Open Rushing. By that 
term I mean this: "open season" is 
declared on freshmen as soon as they 
get on campus, instead of five week- 
later; and Pledge Chapel is held in 
December, preferably just before 
Christmas vacation, instead of in the 
last week of October or the first 
week of November. This is the entire 
answer to the problem, for it rectifies 
the three faults 1 have cit< d. 

First of all, since the rushing peri 
od is four months long, both the 
fresh and the Greeks have plenty of 
time to get to know each other — well 
enough to judge one another fairly 
and open-mindedly. Secondly, since 
the rushing period is four months 
long, exams needn't interfere with 
rushing in the least. Last, but by no 
means least, since the rushing period 
is four months long, there is plenty of 
time to correct any false impressions, 
mistakes, faux-pas or blunders which 
may occur. Also, since there would be 

no lushing rules and regulations 
be observed, the duties ,»f the Ju<i, 
ary Board of the Interfrsten 
Council would be minimized, and 
penalties such as the one i. 
imposed m the house mi Ches*> 
Street would be necessary, 

I si have a couple of suggest

The University of Massachusetts Redmen defeated Vermont

men with live minutes remaining in the hall game. The day was

Beat Clark 8-1 

Playing on a rain-soaked field, up 

to their knees in mud, the varsity 
Soccer team played the perfect host 
t,. Clark by defeating them 8-1. 

The Hriggsmen gave a preview of 
the outcome of the game in the first 
quarter by scoring three goals he 
fore the contest was fifteen minutes 
old. Clark's play was decidedly in- 
ferior to that of the Redmen who 
played spectacular offensive and de- 
fensive ball in spite of the elements. 

The main scoring threat for Mass- 
achusetts was provided by sopho- 
more sensation Al Hoelzel who 
lacked up four Bjoals. Hunter tallied 
twice, while O'Honnell and Simpson 
each accounted for one goal. 

Hoel/.el's scoring spree moved him 
into the lead in the New England 
Intercollegiate Soccer League by a 
margin of one goal over Fames of 
Amherst, his nearest rival. Al's elev- 
en goals seem to place him well on 
the way to setting a new scoring 
record for the school as well as tak- 
ing the scoring championship of the

Aggies Win Third 
Beat Leicester 27-0 

Scoring two touchdowns in the 
first two periods and two more in 
the third quarter, the School of 
Stockbridge gridsters took their 
third straight game from Leicester 
by a score of 27-0 last Friday. 

A Fred Gummow to Frank Mar- 
ti nes pass scored the first period 
touchdown. A long 40-yard pass 
from Paul McGraph to Austin Smith 
coordinated for the second quarter 
TD, and the half time score read 

A 12 yard off tackle run by Rog- 
er Durgin in the third period added 
six more points to the Aggies' stead- 
ily increasing score. A series of long 
runs and a tally by Red Priest found 
the Stockbridge team ahead 27-0. 
Joe Freitas was able to kick every 
point except the last which was 
blocked by the Leicester defense. 

The Aggies again did not appeal 
at full strength. Captain Fred Kelly,

Campus Interviews on Cigarette Tests 

No. 26 


Xou have to get up early in the morning to 
put one over on this cock-of-the-walk! When it 
came to making "quick-trick" experiments of 
cigarette mildness, he stated flatly, "That's strictly 
for clucks"! How 'ya going to keep 'em down 
on the farm— when they know there's one 
convincing way to prove cigarette mildness! 

It's the sensible test ... the 30-day Camel 
Mildness Test, which simply asks you to try- 
Camels as a steady smoke— on a day after day 
basis. No snap judgments. Once you've enjoyed 
Camels for 30 days in your "T-Zone" (T for 
Throat, T for Taste), you'll see why . . .

Tommy Eck of the Physical Edu- 
cation Department is best known on 
campus as football coach, but he is 
also faculty adviser to the Varsity M 
club and member of the small high 
school basketball tournament com- 

He was born on March 25), L914 
in Allentown, Pa. He attended an 
Allentown High and Prep school and 
received his A.B. degree in 1938 
from Colgate. In 1944 he got his 
M.S. degree from what was then 
Mass. State College. 

His first job after graduating from 
college was at Northampton High 
where he was physical education di- 
rector and football and track coach. 
He also taught biology which was 
his major in college. After 4 years 
he came here, serving as line coach. 
In 1945 he wag acting head coach 
for the first football team after a 
two year lapse due to the war. la 
1947 he became head coach for the 

When at Colgate, "Tommy" was 
president of his junior clas3 and of 
his fraternity, Lantbda Chi Alpha. 
He was also a member of the Inter- 
fraternity Council, freshman base- 
ball and basketball teams. He was a 
member of the varsity football squad 
and was voted all-Eastern center. 
As a member of the Eastern Col leg" 
All Star team, he played the N. Y. 
Giants in 1938. 

Mr. Eck is a happily married 
family man with two boys and three 
girls. The youngest daughter was 
born this fall before the Williams 
game. His hobbies are golf and 
I studying the techniques of motion 

pictures. However, during the fall he 
does not have much time for any- 
thing but football. 

He feels that he has a good group 
of boys on the team this year; most 
of them will be back next fall as 
only four on the squad are seniors. 
He feels that the freshmen have 
helped a great deal in forming a 
good defensive team. He believes, 
however, tbat freshman boys play- 
ing varsity football face a difficult 
academic situation.

Mrs. Co-ed Likes 
Cornflakes.DoesMr. : 

Men, Have you ever had the urge 
to pop the big question to that sweet 
co-ed on whom you spend all your 
s|>are time and money? Having had 
several months experience tied by 
the sacred bonds of matrimony, I 
feel qualified -to write and advise 
as an expert on this subject. I feel 
it my duty to present to you the 
facts which will help answer that 
controversial question "Should I get 
married while still in school?" 

My first and main point is strictly 
in favor of such action. By means 
of a little planning, we have proven 
that two can live cheaper than MM. 
So we do have Cornflakes for break- 
fast, Cornflakes for dinner and 
Cornflakes for supper. Already next 
week we change to Rice Krispics. 
And if you're a vet and get (JI sub- 
sistence you've got it made. You can 
even afford milk with your Corn- 

Being a home cc major, fortunc- 
ately, I know how to plan a balanced 
diet, so on the seventh day we have 
a change to balance the rest of tin- 
week. You know, horse meat isn't M 
bad; it tastes just like roast beef if 
you can keep your mind occupied 
with other thoughts. 

Another means of saving material- 
izes in frequent week-end visits to 
the folks. They an- always flattere I 
when then married offspring conies 
homo for mother's cooking. These 
trips cut down tremendously on the 

CornSafce bill. 

We happen to be two of the more 
fortunate University dwellers who 
reside at Federal CirOM. You've per 
haps heard whisperings about the 
adverse conditions down there, but 
its not so bad as rumor has it. Be 
sides, it only costs $28 a month for 
rent, fuel, electricity, water and 
linen. At $28 we should complain'

The duty of the dean el the Col- 
lege of Arts and Sciences will be to 
insure the smooth administration of 
the college. Present deans of the se- 
parate schools (if Arts and Sciences 
will continue to serve as heads of 
their respective departments. 

More than half of the undergrad- 
uate body will be enrolled in this 
new college. Students entering the 
University, under this plan, will be 
registered for the first two years as 
members of the College of Arts and 
Sciences. At the beginning of the 
third year they will enter their ma- 
jor field of work. 

The schools of Agriculture and 
Horticulture, Business Administra- 
tion, Engineering, arid Home Eco- 
nomics will not be affected by the

Where Are You Walking? 

Have you ever noticed where you walk as you amble from 
class to class in those ten minute intervals allowed between lec- 
tures? This may not seem to be a very profound question as you 
con it superficially. Your first reaction will probably be, what do 
you think I do, walk around with my eyes closed? Of course I no- 
tice where I'm going. 

Our question was meant to provoke more than a superficial 
thought, however. We are not concerned with the degree to which 
your eyes are open (or closed) as you cross the campus, nor are 
we concerned with whether you go from Room B to Room C in Old 
Chapel or from the Math Building to Liberal Arts Annex in those 
ten short minutes. Our consideration is the path upon which your 
feet tread. 

You have probably noticed that the grassy areas of the cam- 
pus are designed with paved footpaths, which you may or may not 
use. For those of you who have jumped to the premature conclu- 
sion that this is a "keep off the grass" editorial, we advise getting 
your exercise in some other way. You guessed wrong. As a matter 
of fact, if we were not reluctant to be accused of plotting to over- 
throw the government of the state of Massachusetts, we might 
urge those who use the picturesque pathways to abandon them in 
favor of the grass. We do not wish to be quite so drastic. 

Our interest is with the student body. We aim to help solve 
problems by putting them in print for the "proper authorities" 
(whoever they may be) to see. Many students find that the paths 
which were planned with geometric precision lead nowhere, and 
that the only way to get to class on time is to initiate their own 
paths or to follow one which evidently w;\s similarly initiated by 
some student in similarly urgent circumstances. 

It seems to be the students' obligation i.o rectify another prob- 
lem. We have ten minutes to get to and f r im classes (sometimes 
less if a lecture runs overtime). We do r t like to wear muddy 
tracks across the grass. We think that tl 
and laid out in a most picturesque way. B 
serve the beauty of the campus and get to 

The suggestion that we allow more t 
not feasible. If we had less class time, wc 
what we are paying for in the way of educr 
seems to be a drive for more paved paths. The students are the 
ones to start the campaign as they are the ones who will benefit 
by it. 

It may be necessary to sacrifice a little of the beauty of our 
campus green by constructing some new walks, but surely the 
walks will be more attractive than the ungainly footprints which 
we now see.

When the first critical review parj 
the show, the actors turn on t:j

actors do everything but crawl

scenes are among the funniest ewj 
to be seen on this campus. 

Heading the cast are two Vetera: 
of Roister Doister and Operet; 
Guild productions, Bob Boland ar 
Mary Lowry. In addition, nine i

SAE Beats Middlesex 18-0 For Intramural Crown 

SAE Romps To Win 

Sigma Alpha Epsilon, champion 
{ the fraternity league in intra- 
mural football, broke a five year jinx 
on Tuesday night as they defeated 
the champions of the dormitory 

It-ague 18 -°- The 8 ame > p!ay ed in 
freezing weather, saw the boys from 
Sunset Ave. score early and then 
hold onto their lead. Scoring for the 
unbeaten frat champs were Copar- 
anis, Guarnotta, and Pappas. The 
two former men were the two high 
scorers for the Greeks during the 


The win marked the 'first time in 
the history of the intramural play- 
offs that the fraternity champion 
was able to beat the dormitory 
champion. An interesting thing to 
be noted is that some of the men 
playing for SAE were on the team 
that played under the colors of 
Berkshire B last fall. 

SAE,KS,AEPi,LCA, Middlesex. Berkshire,

In the fraternity league, SAE

Redmen Meet 
Sp'field; Seek 
To Break Jinx 

The University of Massachusetts 
Redmen oppose Springfield College 
tomorrow at Springfield. The Eck- 
men will be out to better their .500 
record which features victories over 
Bates, Rhode Island, and Vermont. 
Springfield has a wide edge over 
UMass. in the series to date. 

The UMass coaching staff had some 
praise for some individual members 
of the team for their work in last 
Saturday's victory over Vermont. 
Head Coach Tommy Eck was pleased 
with the final performance of full 
back Dick Conway, who showed that 
he could run even with the wet field 
and cold temperature. Conway's run- 
ning should add a lot of versatility 
to the backfield when his running is 
combined with that of the Redmen's 
shifty crew of halfbacks. Also picked 
out again for its outstanding work 
was the defensive line, which has con- 
sistently done excellent work in hold- 
ing enemy runners from chalking up 
large gains. The defensive line con- 
sists of: Sophomore ends Tony Cham- 
bers and Jack Casey; Tackles Nobby 
Nolan, who is playing great ball, and 
Al Gilmore; Guards Chubby Bicknell 
and Verne Adams; and center Bob 
Driscoll. Driscoll acts as quarterback 
for this group giving out the de- 
fensive signals. 

The Redmen scouting staff of Joe 
Masi and "Red" Ball saw Rhode Is- 
land defeat Springfield last Saturday. 

New plays have been set up by the 
UMass coaching staff to counteract 
the Maroon defensive alignments. A 
lot of time has also been spent setting 
up defenses against the Springfield 
offensive set up. A victory over the 
Maroons from Springfield will make 
the Redmen's record 4-3. For the 
first time in many years the Redmen 
will be slight favorites to bring home 
the game ball from Springfield. 

In League B, Middlesex upset pre- 
season favored Berkshire B 14-18, 
and then hung on to win the league 
Crown, In second place was a dark 
horse freshman team from Chad- 
bourne that surprised everyone by 
racking up an 8-1 record against 
tough competition. Third place, MM 
half game behind, found the defend- 
ing champions, Berkshire B, with an 
8-2 record.

The little Indians lost 2-0 to VVilli-

fought game. 

Williston scored one goal in the 
first period. After that they were 
held in check by the frosh until the 
final period when Williston scored 
another goal which came from a 
penalty kick. The frosh played their 
best game of the season and with a 
few breaks could have won the game. 

The loss brought the frosh record 
to 1 and 4. They play Monson Acad-

Cornflakes before you even get out 
in' bed in the morning. 

Last week we had twelve guests. 

When they insisted on leaving the 
kitchen and visiting the rest of the 
apartment, I had to convince them 
that interior decoraters were work- 
ing the other rooms. Just yesterday 
we found one of the guests who was 
still caught behind the refrigerator 
where he had been pushed by the 
crowd. Guess maybe it was a little 

One of the main problems is elec- 
tricity. The lights in our apartment 
go out periodically. Since most of 
the cooking, what little we do, is 
done on electrical appliances this 
can become quite annoying. While 

cooking our seventh day meal last 
week (chicken at .45 per lb.) a fuse 
blew out and four sections were in 
complete darkness. No one had a 
fuse for replacement and all the 
stores were closed. But there was 
one consolation. In total darkness 
half-raw chicken doesn't taste half 
as had as you would expect. 

After presenting you with one of 
the phases of married life on the 
U. M. campus you should now be 
better informed to arrive at your 
own conclusions.

IM Tufts Game 

The University Marching Band 
and Drill Team will complete their 
[season tomorrow with what prom- 
ises to be the snappiest routine of 
\ht- season, according to Director 
Joe Contino. 

With a view toward constant im- 
I movement and emphasis on individ- 
ial performance, the Band has grad- 
ually adopted the system used by 
most large bands throughout the 
pount ry whereby letters and forma- 
tions are made with greater speed 
and precision, each bandsman mov- 
ing quietly at the signal to a desig- 
nated spot. Having memorized the 
nit ire program, bandsmen will use 
no music on the field tomorrow. 

With juniors Bill McBane as 
Drum Major and Art Groves a3 
lanager, the Band has captured a 
team spirit this year that is typical 
>f the famous Mid-western bands. 
They reheaise intensely five days 
[per week, one hour each day.

of the Cage. 

One half of the Cage will be util- 
ized, the other half being blocked 
off. Shelley Saltman. '•">•'*, who was 
largely responsible for the suc< 
of the last rally in Bowker, will 
again be the M. C. Band mem!-

WMUA Notice 

Continuing its programs of cam- 
pus-wide interest, WMUA will pre- 
sent the latest election results of the 
primaries i.exi Monday night start- 
ing at 8. All dormitories, fraternities, 
and sororities are asked to call in 
their results to the radio station as 

soon as they are tabulate to aid the 

station in giving up-to-the-minute re- ' dull moment in show 

and "1 Remember 

Mama." According to a report from 
the box office, there are still some 
tickets available for the show being 
produced tonight and tomorrow night. 
Due to the abolition of the amuse- 
ment tax, tickets are now being sold 
at the reduced rati- of $.50, $.75, .1 

Heading a star studded cast will 
be Mary Lowry and Hob Boland. 
Both actors have had considerable 
experience in campus productions. 
These two will be ably supported by 
a cast composed of veterans and new- 
comers to Bowker, including Phil 
Johnson, Marino Grimaldi, Carole 
Cassady, Marguerite Follette, and 
Mario Bruni. 

Staging will be in the charge of 
Howard Galley, and the show is di- 
rected by Professor Arthur Niedeck 
of the English department. 

The play is a comedy based on the 
inside of show business. The plot re- 
volves around the hypercritical actions 
of a cast of I new show who turn on 
the playwright when they think his 
show is a flop, but do ;' complete 
about face when the show becomes a 
success. The comedy is sharp ami 

good, which is evidenced by the 

show's long run on Broadway. 

"Light Up The Sky" is the first 
production of the year to be staged 
at Bowker. it promises to be one of 
the best of the year. The play is 
guaranteed to leave you roaring with 
laughter at the clever humor and dia- 
logue of the cast. There is never a 

business. This 

ports of the progress in the races for

Robert Frost Speaks 
At Amherst Chapel 

Robert Frost, noted American po- 
et, spoke to a capacity audience that 
filled Johnson Chapel at Amherst 
College last Wed. evening, Nov. 7. 

Mr. Frost, who won four Pulitzer 
prizes, has been awarded 20 honor- 
ary degrees, and has, for a number 
of years, taught at many schools in- 
cluding Amherst College. He began his 
talk -with the statement that "there 

is nothing I want more for America 
than the aits." He then went on to 
read several of his poems which have 
done so much toward promoting 
those self -same arts. 

Towards the close of his talk Mi 
Frost told a completely enraptured 

audience, "I don't expect anybody to 
take any stock in me. Poems are dif- 
ferent." But when the evening was 
over and Mr. Fro3t rose to leave the 
chapel, the whole-hearted applause 
of the audience followed him as he 
walked from the room.

Pardon Our Faux Pas 

We seem to have committed a faux pas in letting Mr. Fox's 
"Faux Pas" pass on November 8. Perhaps a bit of explanation is 
due here. 

Mr. Fox's column was added to the Collegian in answer to a 
request for more humorous material in the newspaper. On the 
whole Mr. Fox has done his best to limit his column to humor, 
and we feel that he has done a line job to date. 

In his satirical approach to the Horticulture Show, Mr. Fox 
had no intention of stepping <>»i anyone's toes or of discrediting 
the show or its participant*. He merely took the humorous as- 
pects of the show and played them up for the purpose of his 

We feel that the Collegian showed, by its straight news i 
stories and by the editorial which appeared in the same issue with 
Mr. Fox'a column, that we thought that the Horticulture Show 
was an excellent exhibit. We are certainly the Ant to admit that 
by shows of this type the University gains untold prestige for 
which we, as loyal students, are ever grateful. 

We sincerely hope that those people who wrote letters criti- 
cizing Mr. Fox realize that there was no malice intended in his 
column, nor was there any intention of criticizing the Horticul- 
ture Show. Mr. Fox will continue to write a humorous column in 
the Collegian. His material will come from various sources on 
campus, that is, from any event which has humorous aspects. 
There is humor in many events which seem extremely serious to 
us. It is Mr. Fox's job to find this humor wherever he can and to 
report it in his column. 

We have tried to clarify this situation for those who were 
dissatisfied. In this explanation, we hope that we have assuaged 
any feelings which were hurt by the Co'.legiaifs last "Faux Pas". 

if he had been among the workers 
who cut down trees, built the globe, 
loaded turf in mud and freezing 
rain, made hedges, carted sawdust 
in freezing weather. 

Mr. Fox is definitely among the 
minority of people who are critical 
of the work of beauty from a non- 
horticulturist standpoint, especially 
just to get a column in the CoUog- 
iini! I am sure he could have found 
something batter to write about. 

It certainly does nothing for Mr. 
Fox's reputation among the students 
who worked on the show and those 
who enjoyed it. If he didn't like the 
show just because it kept him from 
playing basketball or because it di 1 
not interest him, he could have kept 
it to himself as it does no credit to the 
students of this University, most tf 
whom are here to broaden their ed- 
ucation, but with narrow-minded in- 
dividuals such M he they won't get 
very far.

Letters To The Editor 

Tc the Editor: 

While leading the Tuesday issue 
of the Collegia* I found a very sar- 
castic take-off on the Horticulture 
Show by one Mr. Fox. It was quite 
a contrast to the excellent editorial 
on the second pace and I was sur- 
prised that you would publish such 
an article. 

I only wish that Mr. Fox could 
have gone with us and helped haul 
tree* down Mt. Toby and bring in 
wet sod in freezing weather. I am 
sure that if he had done anything at 
all in helping put on the Hort. Show, 
he would have enjoyed it and would 
feel the same way I do about such 
an article. There are several hun- 
dred other students who spent lone; 
hours both in and out of the Cage 
who will back me up. Possibly Mr. 
Fox thinks are put on the Hort. 
Show just for laughs, but after 
hearing all the wonderful comments 
I know that most of the 21,000 peo- 
ple who saw the show really appre- 
ciated i: and thought it was worth 
using the Cape for a few days. 
A for the music which h 

All i i all, Mr. Fox certainly 
showed I ick of discretion in his col- 
umn, Ti. sday. I hope this is not the 
opinion of many students at the 
Universi'y of Mass. as this show- 
greatly 1 nefits the University. 
Roland B. Shaw, SSA '68 


as very welcome 

allv at 1 o'clock in the morning. 

To the Editor: 

I am specifically aiming this let- 
ter to a certain individual who 
writes the column "Faux Pas" for 
the Collegian, It's too bad that he 
and his friends can't forego one 
Sunday afternoon of basketball 
while the U. of M. builds its repu- 
tation and increases its popularity 
by staging its annual Horticulture 

If the author, Mr. Fox, had been 
one of the participating workers I 
am sure he would have Appreciated 
the results which some 20,000 people 
Beemed to enjoy. The workers of all 
departments of Horticulture includ- 
ing instructors and students pat in 
many hours of work, both on the 
main exhibit and student exhibits. 

1 am sure he would not have writ- 
ten such an unappreciative take-off

:58th to complete the Redmen scor- 
ing. The final totals saw the Red- 
men finish with 169 points in the 
New Englands compared with BU's 
winning 55. 

The Yankee Conference totals 


were decidedly different as Lancast- 
er's second place finish counted. The 
final totals gave the Redmen ~>o 
points, ten points ahead of Rhode Is- 
land, their nearest competitor. 

The freshman cross country team 
led by Conlin and Tripp finished in 
a better spot than the varsity. The 

freshman totals found the Little In- 
dians with 107 points in third place 
behind Tufts and Providence. If 
Lancaster had run in the freshman 
race, the Little Indians would prob- 
ably have romped. 

The win set a record for the har- 
riers that will be hard to beat. Prior 
to this year, the best that the Derby- 
men had been able to do was a sec- 
ond in the Connecticut Valley meet, 
and two seconds in the Yankee Con- 
ference meet. Thus in one week, the 
liiim wiped out the records of the 
1947 squad by winning both the 
Conn. Valley and the Yankee Con- 

Next week, the varsity and fresh- 
men run their final race of the year 
as they travel to New York to com- 
pete in the IC4A meet. Last year, 
Harry Aldrich finished second in the 
freshman race. This year, the var- 
sity should be able to present a much 
stronger team due to the addition 
of freshman star Burt Lancaster. 
If Aldrich, Knapp, McMullin, and 
Captain Allen have good days, there 
is a good chance that the Redmen 
may bring home the bacon once

season. The Redmen will be out to 
end the season on a happy note with 
a victory over Tufts which will give 
the Eckmen a .500 record. The Bed- 
men are licking their wounds as a 
result of last Saturday's defeat at 
the hands of Springfield, and a win 
over arch rival Tufts will help the 
Redmen forget a rather dismal sea- 

Last year at Boston, a strong 
Tufts eleven defeated UMass. 7-6. 
This year, Tufts has had a very poor 
season and they do not have one win 
to show for their efforts. Last Sat- 
urday New Hampshire massacred 
Tufts 60-0. The nearest thing that 
the Jumbos can show for a victory 
is an early season tie with Bates. 
Northeastern and Rhode Island both 
ran up large totals against the men 
from Medford. 

Captain Jack Benoit will be lead- 
ing the Redmen on to the field for 
the final time tomorrow. At times 
during the year. Jack has showed 
signs of excellence as he has directed 
the ball club from the quarterback 
slot. Other men who have played ex- 
cellent ball for the Redmen this year 
are: Buster DiVincenzo, Gigi How- 
land. Dick Conway, Noel Reebenack- 
er, and Ted Piers in the backfield, 
while in the line Nobby Nolan, Chub- 
by Bicknell, Lou Prokopowich, Bob 
Vafides, and Tony Chambers have 
been giving their best every Satur- 
day. It is interesting to note, that 
all these boys will be back next year. 

A capacity crowd is expected at 

Alumni field tomorrow and a repeat 
performance of the Rhode Island 
game would be a fitting climax t 
the season which has seen the team 
have both its ups and downs.

Springfield Stampedes 

Trounce Redmen 42-14 

In a game marked by long runs, 

.j„ Kedmen suffered their fourth 

.u of the current campaign as 

received their worst beating in 

year! at the hands of Springfield 

College last Saturday 42-14. 

Springfield Jumped off to a 16-0 

lead in the first haif before the Red- 

tn.ii finally struck pay dirt. The 

Gymnaitl first score was set up by 

Mass fumble deep in their own 

territory. Leading 18-0, the Indians 

1 tO insure an early win by a 20 

yard field goal from a 4<> degree an- 
!>y Hoffman. The Redmen struck 
back 09 a 40 yard pass from Reeben- 
. r to Pyne who stepped out on 
the 1". Three plays later, Reeb 
.wept to the right and threw a pass 
in the end zone to Charlie Redman 
for the score. Buster DiVincenzo 
made the extra point good as the 
half read 16-7 Springfield in front. 

Mainly on the running of Insalace 
1 1 ">7 and a GO yard run) and the 
passing of Captain Don Teel, the 
holt club scored twice in the third 
>d and twice more in the fourth 
before throwing in the subs. With 
the score reading 42-7, Springfield 
kicked off. Reebenacher took the ball 
two yards behind the goal line, and 
le a beautiful twisting run of 
102 yards for the Redmen to make 
final score read 42-14. The de- 
marked the 36th straight year 
that the Redmen have been una 
beat Springfield. Although the 

Little Indians 
Beaten In Final 
Quarter by Spfld 

dotal was the worst ever inflicted on 
an Kck coached eleven, at least the 
team had the satisfaction of scoring 
against a team that bail shut them 
out for three straight years. 

Outstanding stars m the gam-' 
were Noel lleebenacher and Buster 
DiVineenau in the backfield and vet 
eian Nobby Nolan m the line. The 
team milled their injured players 
which include Lou Prokopowich, 
Gigi Howland, Billy Rex, Ted Tiers 
— all men who have proved their 
worth to the club. The Summary:

Briggsmen Bow 
Win In Two Games 

The varsity soccer team defeated 
Boston University last Saturday 4-0 
in Boston. Most of the action cen- 
tered around the BU goal from the 
very start. The Redmen surpassed 
their opponent! both defensively ami 
offensively throughout the contest. 

Al Hoelzel, center forward for the 
Redmen, and the league's high scor- 
er, added to bis point totals by tal- 
lying three of the four Massachu- 
setts points. Brad McGrath scored 
the fourth goal for the Briggsmen. 

The victory gave tin- Redmen a 
needed boost after their '■>-'- loss to 

Springfield College last week. In this 
contest, Hoeliel Recounted for both 

of the I'M ass tallies. 

Next Saturday at 10:80 A.M., the 

team will close its L961 schedule 
against Tufts College on Alumni 
Field. The game will be featured by 
the play of Hoelzel versus Tomasso 
and Bennett of Tufts. The latter tw , 
are tied for third in the league scor- 
ing rare.

Results of the Yankee conference 
football season were released today 
by the Conference Director of Ath-

place behind Maine, who has already 
clinched the crown by defeating 

three Conference rivals. The Redmen 

scored two wins in Conference play 
bj defeating Rhode Island and Ver-

The Springfield freshmen came 
from behind to defeat the U of M 
freshmen in the final minutes of 
play, 21 to 6. 

The Redmen, pinned in their own 
territory for the greater part of the 
game, held off Springfield until a 
series of breaks enabled them to 
cash in three touchdowns and a safe- 
ty in the last 6 minutes of play. 

Springfield took the opening kick- 
off and ran it back to the Redmen's 
five; however, they were stopped by 
the stubborn Mass. defense, giving 
up j>ossession erf the ball on the 
10. The Redmen were unable to 
move the ball at all in the first half, 
never getting beyond their own 35. 

The little Indians scored in the 
third period on a pass from Kowi- 
leaki to Mallon. The extra point try 
just missed. 

Springfield rallied in the last pe- 
;. They got 2 points when a 
Mass. back fumbled a punt in his 
i ton*. After the ensuing kickoff, 
y marched to another score. The 
Redmen, fighting desperately to get 
Uick in the game, had two passes

downs by the alert Springfield de-

Challenging variety of problems solved

As a student of mechanical engineer-

in research, development, plant en- 
gineering or production supervision? 

In the Digest this month, we'd like 
to discuss the ample outlet Du Pont 
offers your talents in these fields. 

Let's talk about research and de- 
velopment together becausethey often 
overlap indistinguishably. Both these 
fields deal with mechanisms for mak- 
ing products. In some cases, original 
equipment is designed for a new prod- 
uct. In others, machinery used in mak- 
ing existing products is improved to 
provide better quality at lower cost. 

This design and development work 
may call for stuuie.^. ol the vibration of

machine elements, equipment, struc- 
tural members and structures. Or there 
may be need for application of elec- 
tronics, instrumentation, operation of 
test equipment and testing of experi- 
mental machines. In much of this ac- 
tivity there is close cooperation with 
other engineers, participation in group 
conferences, joint analysis of data, 
and issuance of recommendations. 

Du Pont research and development 
engineers keep informed of develop- 
ments through technical, trade and 
patent literature, seminars and lec- 
tures. Exceptional facilities for these 
are provided. 

Here are some examples, specific 
and general, of the problems that con- 
front Du Pont research and develop- 
ment engineers: 

1 . Develop and design high-speed slit- 
ting equipment for thin films. In- 
volved are unwind and wind-up ten- 
sion regulation, alignment of web 
travel and cutting-knife selection, 
combined in a machirfe easy to service. 

2. Design equipment to operate at 
pressures up to 46,000 p.s.i. This is 
insurance against the time w hen proc- 
esses may be developed that will op- 
erate in this range. 

As pressures are increased, design 
problems for moderate pressures are 
magnified. Typical are stress-fatigue 
of metals, design of vessel closures 
and line joints, valves and packing for 
reciprocating compressors and centrif- 
ugal pumps, packing glands for stirred 
autoclaves, etc. 

3. Design, installation and testing of 
large air-conditioning systems neces- 
sary in the manufacture of certain 
products. In one plant, water is used 
at the rate of 50 million gallons daily, 
current at 25,000 kw. per hour, and 
air at 5.5 million C.F.M. 

These three examples, selected from 

I. T. ftradthow, li.S. ME. '4(i, M.S. '47, 
Queens 1 1 '., Ireland, and J.I). McHugh, U.S. 
M.E., check theoretical calculations. 

literally hundreds, can only hint at the 
breadth and variety of the problems that 
are constantly arising. 

One of the strongest pieces of evidence 
that mechanical engineering is of major 
significance in the Du Font Company is 
the existence of the Wilmington Shops. 
They represent an investment of over 
$3,600,000 and cover an area of .'',00,000 
sq. ft., including a foundry and pattern 
shop. They employ over 800 men and 
have a potential output in volume of 
work in excess of $6,000,000 a year. 

The size and diversity of this operat ion 
are justified only because the work of 

mechanical engineers is an Important 

factor in Du Pont operations.

lister Doisters Begin Season 
ith Top Play and Perfect Cast 

by Judy Broder 

The Roister Doisters scored another hit this week-end ! Moss 

art supplied the play with its hilarious dialogue and Prof. Nie- 

eck found the perfect cast to perform it. 

The setting, theater-wise, was a simple one, well-planned and 

signed for smooth action and effective p-rtrayal of the scene.

I well as the many workers who 
Itlped to stage the show. 

As for the acting, it reached a 
■eak achieved in only a few pro- 
ketiofU in the past three years. No 

otter cast could have been chosen, 
my humble opinion. Mary Lowry 
Irene Livingston was her usual 
lynainic self. Showing her versatility, 

he went from melodramatic to ab- 

nlutely down-to-earth at a moment's 

,,tice. Marino Grimaldi played Sid- 

I y Black with conviction and energy. 

am looking forward to seeing this 

leweomer to campus dramatics in 

he future as he has a great deal of 
lalent in that line. Carleton Fitz- 
gerald, portrayed by Bob Boland made 

ne want to cry. He was over-dra- 

natic to perfection, adding another 
leather to his bonnet for dramatic 

erformances. There was never a mo- 

nent without a laugh when Carole

In stage. Miss Cassady played the 
ioarse old mother most convincing- 
showing true theatrical ability.

peace. Having filled up on what he 
described as "clam juice" to keep 
him warm, he proceeded to lead un- 
heard of cheers, tantalize a young- 
with a peanut, and divert the 
ition of most of the stadium 
when he played hide-and-go-seek 
with the men in blue. The tan coat 
*nd derby made wild gestures in im- 
<>n of traffic cops in action. The 
mimicry ceased as one cop tanked 
ply about, only to be met with 
■ mild gentleman quietly waving to 
e friends in the stands. When 
policeman returned to his patrol 
the sidelines, the cane, coat, an 1 
ipeau returned to the hilarious 
es, This time, however, the lone 

arm of the law reached out and mer- 
cilessly dragged the innocent by- 
stander down the field. By this time, 
thousands of eyes were turned on 
Saturday's Hero and a big hand 
greeted his return a few short min- 
utes later. This time, he was escort- 
ed by his associates in frivolity. 

At the Tufts game, the tan coat 
was seated on a bicycle, and was 
seen prancing down the sidelines 
with a hotdog half out of its bread 
basket. This same hotdog is report- 
ed to have been seen flipping from 
a cocker spaniel's nose into its 
mouth; a perfect catch. Then there 
was the time that Ed became a 
member ex officio of the Drill Team 
at last year's finale with these same 
Jumbos, with his group parading at 
half time, keeping the fans laugh- 

But football isn't the only sport 
to which this versatile personality 
and his followers have given their 
talents. At one basketball exhibition 
last year, a crew of unappointed 
referees was seen performing on the 
bench. Precision of movement is the 
best way to describe their antics. 
Every move, from a writhing wiggle 
to a called foul was executed in per- 
fect coordination. So too was the 
basketball passing show put on by 
the same group. If ever a show was 
to get its true name, "Campus Va- 
rieties" belongs to them. 

The leader should graduate this 
year, but here's hoping the group 
will continue to carry on in the same 
spirit. At rallies and at ball games, 
Ed Jasinski has played an important 
part in keeping the U.M. rooting 
section strong.

Should Freshmen Vote? 

Last Thursday Adelphia and Isogon went to the trouble of 
holding a rally for freahmeo to enable them to get acquainted with 

those members of their class who are running Cor class officers. To 
call the meeting a fiasco would be gross understatement. The 
fault lay entirely with the frosh and not with the sponsors who 
organized the rally as effectively as they could. Posters were lo- 
cated in all freshman dorms and in vital places on campus. The 
CO-chairmen, Ray Gunn and Marie Jacobs, contacted all aspirants 
for offices and told them how much time was alloted for their 
speeches. Everything was figured out to perfection. What more 
was there to do? Perhaps taxis should have been sent to chauffeur 
the indolent and indifferent students down to Bowker. 

It seems that we have about 800 freshman men and women 
who feel that they know every member of their class well enough 
to decide which of them should be officers for the coming year. 
Well, uv heartily congratulate you. We upperclassmen are still 
dubious as to whether or not we know every member of our 

Not all of the meager 200 (about one-fifth of the class) who 
attended the rally showed the proper spirit either. Perhaps it 
would have been better if they had remained in the dorms or spent 
the hour in the C-store, too. Most of us, by the time we reach what 
is more commonly known as "the college level", have become at 
least superficially acquainted with the term "respect". The word 
as we know it has a deeper meaning than giving old ladies seats in 
crowded busses or standing when the president of the University 
enters an assembly. One is not required to pass middle age to 
merit a little common courtesy. Yes, we owe some respect to those 
who are in our own age group. When a class convenes, and this 
does not happen very often, the members of said class would do 
well to be polite enough to listen attentively while speeches are 
being made. Time for cheering and noiscmaking is allowed, and 
should be used appropriately. 

Apparently our hopes for freshman class spirit were un-

Letters to the Editor 

To the Editor: 

I would like to point out the bad 
conditions of some of the paths here 
on the school grounds during rainy 
weather. Not that I mind getting my 
feet wet, but 1 think it is a disgrace 
the way some of the lawns are get- 
ting chewed u|< because of oozy 

Two of these paths can be direct- 
ly seen. One around the front of the 
Cage and the other between the 
Cage and Berkshire House. 

There are also several others, one 
across campus towards Hasbrouck; 
another from Draper to the Engin- 
eering Building. 

It seems to me that as long as \v<- 
chose this school to be our Alma Ma- 
li"', we should at least strive to keep 
it a respectable looking place. 

I realize there are alternative 
routes to take on the way to classes 
but who takes thetn? No one that I 
know of; I know I don't, do you? 

Therefore) as a suggestion, I feel 
the maintenance crew should look 
over some of the paths and either 
place some asphalt over them or 
planks to keep the people on the 
paths instead of all over the lawn.

Ed. Note: IV e have dtseeisesd thie 

problem in an editorial. Perhaps a 
few m&re tetters like this may start 
the IhiII rolling in the riaht direction. 

To the Editor: 

It's been nearly five months since 
I left school at the University of 
Massachusetts and enlisted in the 
Marine Corps. During this time I've 
had a chance to look back on the 
overall picture of life and education 
at the University. The faults and 
merits of the system as well as of 
the attitudes of the student body- 
are gradually defining themselves in 
clear cut terms. Rather than dealing 
a volley of criticism, I prefer to tak • 
this opportunity to express my deep- 
est appreciation to the Executive 
Hoard of the Concert Association for 
the really fine job it is doing. 

The purpose of the Association is 
to bring to the school not only the 
best in the musical world, but also 
the added prestige which accompan- 
ies a famous name. There is no ques- 
tion in my mind but that the aim is 
being accomplished. The world is 

sadly lacking in an appreciation of 

the refinements of great music and 
the University is no exception to the 
rule. If it were not for the efforts 
of the Conceit Association, the mu- 
sical outlook at the University woill 
hi sad indeed. But the Association 
is functioning and doing a fi'«t rate 
job of it. It has made all the differ- 
ence in the world to hundreds of fin-

Favored Redmen Held To Tie 
As Tufts' Passes Click 

The University of Massachusetts 
ended their 1961 season last Satur- 
day by playing to a M tie with 
Tufts. The Redmen were heavily fa- 
vored, but they could not stop the 
passing of Tom Csssell who com- 
pleted '24 out of 42 passes thrown 
from a double wing formation. Tufts 
had used the "T" in all their previ- 
ous games, but they switched to the 
double wing for this game. 

( assell kept the Redmen in trouble 
throughout the game with his pitches 
to Dave Harrison, Dave Fenton, and 
Bill Burns. Late in the third quarter, 
Tufts recovered a UMass fumble on 
the Mass 16 yard line. A Cassell to 
Harrison pass was good for 15 yards, 
and then Bob Meehan went over from 
the one, for the tying score. 

The Redmen scored early in the 
second period. Taking the ball on 
their own 33, they marched the length 
of the field. Ted Piers and Charley 
Redman carried the ball most of the 
time, and Redman scored on a 22 
yard run. Poor punting on the part 
of Jack Benoit kept Tufts near mid- 
field for the majority of the game. 

One of the best runs of the game, 
was Ted Piers' return of a Tufts 
kickoff. He took the ball on the 3 
and was finally pulled to the ground 
on the 45. UMass could not move as 
fumbles stopped the Redmen attack. 
Tufts moved the ball to a TD midway 
through the fourth quarter, but the 

touchdown was called hack because 
ol a clipping penalty. 

A lighting Tufts eleven outplayed 
I Mass throughout the game and the 
final record for Massachusetts reads 
three wins, four losses, and one tie.

It seems that spirit on this cam- 
pus has hit a new low. Only 200 
were in atten. lance at the rally last 

Friday night. The committee worked 

hard on this rally, and it's too bad 
that more students weren't there. 

With the completion Of last Sat- 
urday's games, the Pall sports sched- 
; |, came to an end. The football 
team had a poor season, highlight 
Of which was the 404 win OVOI

was believed that the Eckmen would 

have good record, but the team fell 

off after reaching its peak for the 

Rhody name. 

Al Hoel/.el scored one sjoal in the soccer game with Tufts. Al

the All New England team, and it 

I would not be tOO much of a surprise 

I if he made honorable mention on the

the league scorinii record this year 

With IK goals. 

The Cross Country team ran in 
New York yesterday at the IC4A 
meet With mostly freshmen and 
sophomores on this years' team, next 
year's record should be better than 
this year's, which saw Coach Derby*! 
hoys go undefeated in daal meet 
competition, and win the Connecticut 
Valley ami Yankee Conference 

The basketball team is rapidly 

rounding into shape for its coming 

man. The squad will have to be 

in top shape, because it plays four 

games in its opening week of play. 
Scrimmages have been bald with 
Amherst, Springfield, and Westov-r 
Field, and the team has looked fair 
ly goad. Captain Bill l'revey will bfl 

,,ut to break his scoring record 
which be set two years ago. Henry 
Mosychuk, Malcolm Macleod, and 
Berate Kaminski appear to have 
won starting berths on this yean 
five. The other starter is in doubt 
with Ed Conceisian, Bill Stephens, 
Tom Harlow, and Art Barrett fight- 
ing for the berth. The remainder of 
the squad is made up of Ray Gunn, 
Shell Saltman, Jack Delahunt, John 
Snaido, Dick Norman, Frank Bar- 
ous, and Charley Tilton. 

Whitewash Trinity 

The l' of Mass. freshman squad 
finished its football season with a 
record of :! and 2, defeating Trinity 
College 18 to ti at Hartford, Tliui, 


The Redmen played then be-.t 
game of the year, dominating the 
play and never allowing Trinity to 
penetrate beyond the Mass. lc 

The Redmen scored in the second 

period following a drive of .">!> yards. 
Kowahski made the seme on a 80 
yard end sweep. Fistori hooted the 
extra point to make it 7-0. The other 

Redmen tally came in the third 
quarter after another •"><• yard 

march. The touchdown was set up 
b) DiBiaso on a 40 yard dash. Di- 
Biaso then scored on a 2 yard buck. 
The extra point was good, but a 
holding penalty nullified it and the 
.-c cond t iv fell short.

The University of Massachusetts 

soccer squad played its last game of 
the season last Sat unlay as they 
tied a potent T'jftS outfit 8-8, Plaj 
ing on Alumni Field before the l.i

men had to COUM from behind to ti«

Going into the fourth period, tin 
Redmen managed to move within one 
goal of a tie on two tallies by Hunt 
ei which made the seme read 8-2. 
In the waning minutes of the game, 
it cord breaking high-scoring cente 
forward Al lloel/.el took ftdvants 

of a scoring opportunity to notch 

the tying goal.

Activities Many and Lively For 
Home Ec Majors at Apartments

Bring your suitcase to dinner to- 
night; we're eating Bohemian style! 

No, you're not being invited to 
Greenwich Village but to a dinner 
at the Home Management Apartments 
on the top floor of the Faculty Apart- 
ment building. There for six week 
periods Home Economic! majors 
practice their homemaking skills un- 
der the direction of Miss Alice Davey. 

The apartments were first used as 
the home management house last year 
when the Homestead, the white house 

n Yeutter 

to the left «>f the Abbey, was closed 
for repairs. The double apartment en- 
ables the students to get first hand 
knowledge of managing a modem 
home. Each girl in the group is given 
the chance to cook, plan menus, keep 
the family accounts, shop, make table 
decorations, and plan entertainment 

All work and no play makes dull 
girls, so plans for social events were 
continually buzz-in. One evening the 
house resounded with the merriment

Economics faculty were honored 
quests at a Halloween costume party, 
Complete with ducking for apples and 
ghost stories. 

Dates were frequently invited up 
to sample the culinary efforts of their 
favorite cook. In turn they were some- 
times pressed into service as errand 
hoys when supplies mysteriously ran 
out. At times like that men are handy 
things to have around the house! 

Always on the lookout for new and 
better ways to do things around the 
house, the girls experimented with 
many different ways to eat meals. 
Have you ever tried a living room 
picnic or a Bohemian dinner where 
everyone sits crosslegged around a 
table of suitcases pushed into the 
middle of the floor and covered with 
a cloth? Common everyday food is 
guranteed to take on new appeal 

when sreved in these different seat 
ing arrangements. 

The apartments have been com- 
pletely redecorated. Painters bathed 
the walls in the newest chartreuse 
color as a fitting background for the 
modern blondwood furniture. The 
rooms are in the modern trend of 
interior decoration in direct contrast 
to the Homestead house, to be fur- 
nished in the Early American style.

Campus Interviews on Cigarette Tests 

No. 28... 



.ast Grand Master of the Royal Order of 
Gourmets and Raconteurs — our outspoken 
friend knows how to find the proof of the 
pudding. Especially such a thing as cigarette 
mildness! A "quick puff" and a "single sniff" 
left him hungry for facts. Smokers everywhere 
have tried the same tests and discovered the one 
true test of cigarette mildness! 

IV* the sensible test ... the 30-Day Camel 
Mildness Test, which simply asks you to try 
Camels as your steady smoke, on a day-after-day, 
pack-after-pack basis. No snap judgments. Once 
you've tried Camels for 30 days in your "T-Zone" 
( T for Throat, T for Taste ) ? you'll see why . . .

Things can happen on and around 
fcampus that everyone hears about, 
but come vacation time, the trans- 
portation problem is one that vexes 
nany a student. 

Ebeneezer Twinbottom puts up an 
ad on the C-store bulletin board, 
paly to have three others post their 
rides for sale on the same tack. In- 
dustrious students, however, dig un- 
derneath what's on the surface, spy 
(the reduced rates, and swamp Ebi- 
neezer with calls. Dreams of a new 
crankshaft decorated with metal 
ronnecting rods instead of the 
string he's now using, Mr. Twin- 
bottom is rudely awakened the day 
before he is to leave, when four of 
Jtfl five riders notify him thut

Frantically he places another no-

What a smooth ride! It's just like 
the time we rode over the Badlands 
in a Rolls Royce. It rides like a 
Greyhound — one that stops at every 
telephone pole! 

But it couldn't be as bad as the 
guys inside the car. One joker light- 
ed his cigarette but apparently had 
a bacon sandwich for lunch before 
he left, "cause he kept dropping the 
darn thing behind the cushion and 
starting small fires." 

Then came the interesting discus- 
sions. Do we really need the heater 
on, or should we enjoy nature with 
the window open? 

By this time we're about ten or 
fifteen miles on the way, and as we 
pass the bridge with the sign "not 
safe for more than l- r > tons," some- 
one is bound to make the usual 
crack. There's finite an emotional 
letdown as we siowly chug by at 
eight" m.p.h. and see a stranded 
hitch-hiker on the road; someone we 
know from school. The letdown dies 
out after we've passed him as every- 
one sadistically begins to roar with

After-Dinner Thoughts 

Having just returned from Thanksgiving Recess, we feel 
that it would be profitable to consider just what we have to be 
thankful for in this time of chaos. 

Although many sections of the world have suffered invasions 
in our lifetime, few, if any of us, have felt or seen any personal 
destruction. Our homes have not been bombed or invaded by 
enemy forces and our democratic rights have not been suppressed. 

One of the primary factors of our civilazation, our education- 
al opportunity, has remained intact. Unlike instances in many 
foreign countries, our libraries have not been destroyed, nor have 
our professors been tortured or killed because of their ideas. 

Here we sit. complaining about the lengthy assignments 
which our professors will pile upon us as we play "just one more 
hand", never considering that we are fortunate to have these 
learned men among us and that we are able to reap the benefits 
of their educations. It would be a pleasure to many young men 
and women to exchange places with us, in spite of our numerous 
"burdens". We ought to realize this fact and say "thanks". 

We are free. Sometimes we wonder how true this statement is. 
How free can we be grinding out term papers, spending hours of 
research in the library, meeting due dates for assignments, taking 
exams? We can be, and are, free to express our own opinions in 
these papers without fear of being executed for so doing. We are 
free to disagree with those professors with whose opinions we 
are in opposition. The freedom to express our opinions can never 
be over-emphasized as one of our liberties and blessings. We are 
free to go to school and to take examinations. Yes, we do have 
much more freedom than we give ourselves credit for. 

We have a great deal to be thankful for. Even that turkey 
dinner in which we indulged, or over-indulged as the case may 
be, is one of our blessings. How many persons of our age are not 
so fortunate as we? This is a question which we may not be able 
to answer statistically, but which we knew has an answer— and a 
large one. 

by John 

At the present time there are six 
boards or committees which control 
and service our ninety activities and 
regulate our social life. These six 
groups; the Seriate Activities Com- 
mittee, Academic Activities Board, 
Student Life Committee, Calendar Co- 
ordinaing Committee, Informal Dance 
Committee, and the University Social 
Committee, are all working for the 
same goal: better activities. However, 
they are all working independently, 
without liaison, overlapping member- 
ship or any other scheme that would 
insure working closely together. Their 
functions are somewhat different but 
their object and goal are the same. 
None of the six has such a great 
amount of work that it could not 
all be done by one group. 

Let's look at the duties of these 
committees. The Senate Activities 
Committee studies and recommends 
action on Constitutions of new clubs 
and it makes general policy concern- 
ing scheduling. In addition, it stands 
ready to assist any club or organiza- 
tion with any problem. 

The Academic Activities Board 
supervises the finances of the Aca- 
demic Activities and makes general 
policy concerning these groups. The 
systems used by this board is ex- 
cellent and is run by capable persons, 
but it is completely separated from 
the other groups. Furthermore, the 
finances are handled by one individu- 
al when there should be several work- 
ing on such an important job. 

The Student Life Committee makes 
policy concerning social life at the 
University and enforces this policy. 
I will go into this committee in more 
detail in the next of this series. 

The Calendar Co-ordinating com- 
mittee coordinates the time, date and 
place of all campus events. The In- 
formal Dance Committee holds in- 
formal dances and the University So- 
cial Committee doesn't even bother 
to function. 

I do not criticize the job done by 
ar.y one of these groups. They are all 
working as well and as efficiently as 
possible under this present system. 
There is some overlapping of duties 
and a general duplication in gather- 
ing information. A club will get one 
questionnaire from a committee one 
week and one, asking essentially the 
same questions, from a different com- 


mittee the next week. Effective con- 
trol over our organizations is now 
lacking. The Finance committee has 
considerable trouble in collecting in- 
formation for making out the budget 
because of this confusion. One has to 
wade through red tape for weeks to 
get any information about an organ- 
ization. There are examples of this 
lack of control and confusion cropping 
up every day. The only way to end 
the overlapping and wasting of ef- 
fort is by consolidation. 

If a department of activities were 
set up within the student government 
organization it could easily coordin- 
ate the duties of these six commit- 
tees. A joint student-faculty board of 
sixteen would make all policy con- 
cerning activities. Policy made by this 
board would be subject to approval 
of the President of the University 
and to review by the Student Senate. 
Under this board there would be sec- 
tions to study constitutions, control 
finances, schedule events and meet- 
ings and to gather and disperse in- 
formation. Members of the policy 
board would head the sections and 
other students and faculty members 
would work with the sections. 

This department would also be 
ready and more able to provide as- 
sistance to campus groups. It could 
aid organizations in planning pro- 
grams and clubs in running social 
events. In short, this department 
would handle any matter concerning 

In this way there would be one 
group to make policy; not six, one 
group to handle information: not six, 
and one group to co-ordinate and serv- 
ice extra-curricular activities: not 
six. If this plan is adopted, it would 
end the present confusion and over- 
lapping duties, and it would provide 
better and quicker service to our 
campus organizations. It would also 
bring all student groups directly with- 
in the student government. 

If we do nothing to improve our 
present system, we will continue in 
the present anarchy, still lack effec- 
tive control over our campus groups 
and be unable to assist them proper- 
ly. The real purpose of the Student 
■Government is service. This Depart- 
ment of Activities would really be a 
big step towards unity in the student

veteran on this year's starting five, and he will be counted upon to 
do most of the scoring from his center position. Sophomores Bernie 
Kaminski and Malcolm Macleod appear to have the guard positions 
wrapped up. Henry Mosychuk, with his great one hand set shot, 
will be at one of the forward posts, and Ed Conceisian, Bill Steph-

by Selma 

The Iioixneluer Polytechnic: 

I think the one point at which all 
students show themselves for the 
men they are is immediately after a 
quiz. Each man has his own definite 
attitude, and they can be divided up 
into several categories. 

"First there is the Worry Wart. 
He has never taken an easy quiz. 
He comes out of the room, and 
greets you with a sad face exclaim- 
ing, "Boy, did I louse that one up. 
I doubt if I got better than a 2.0 
and I might as well have stayed in 
bed." He usually has a "B" average 
for the term. He explains this by 
saying, "You could have knocked me 
over with a feather when I got my 
paper back and I saw that "B" on 
it. They must have graded on a 

"Second, and most obnoxious of 
all, is the Killjoy. His standard 
opening after a quiz, "What did you 
get for problem number two?" And 
when you tell him what you got for 
problem number two he counters 
with, 'That's all wrong. You forgot 
to square the second derivative and 
you didn't convert the pounds per 
year to centimeters per second. The 
arr ver should be 69.69." The trou- 
ble is that he usually is right. His 
term average is about 3.9 and he 
takes it as his just due. 


"Third, we have the Martyr. He is 

laboring under the delusion that the 
whole qui" system was set up to give 
the instructors a chance to work otT 
their sadistic tendencies on him per- 
sonally. He comes out of the quiz as 
mad as Hades and says, "Boy, what 
a shaft job that was. Why they 
didn't have a single thing on it that 
we covered in class. They must have 
made that one up while smoking ree- 
fers. I guess they got orders to 
flunk more guys." Naturally, his 
term average is "F". 

"Next we have the Optimist. Su- 
piemely confident in his ability he 
comes out of the quiz saying, "I 
think I creamed this one. All the 
answers fell right into place. It 
really was a snap. I guess I got a 
4.0." This type is happy until he 
cets his paper back or runs into the 
Killjoy. However, he does manage a 
"R" or a C for the year. He is 
represented most in the Frosh class 
and is nearly extinct among seniors. 

"The type that is most likeable 
and truly representative of a student 
at his best, is not definable by name. 
He takes the quiz and does not com- 
ment at all. When asked about it, 
he usually says, "I guess the quiz 
was all right— I'll wait till I get it 

Yale To End 
Spring Training; 
Discussion Wide 

Wide spread confusion and dis- 
agreement seem to have been the 
only result of the recent premature 
announcements that Yale and Wil- 
liams would discontinue spring train- 
ing in football as a means of de-em- 

The first inkling of such a move 
came when the Yale Daily News 
learned that the Board of Athletic 
Control had decided Sept. 15 to elim- 
inate football practice next year, and 
broke the story in the Nov. 18 issue. 
Meanwhile, Pres. James Phinney Bax- 
ter III of Williams had announced 
Nov. 9 that Williams had decided to 
eliminate spring practice "regardless 
of what opponents do." 

Yale President A. Whitney Gris- 
wold confirmed the Daily News* re- 
port "with regret" the following day, 
emphasizing that he had planned to 
"defer public announcement pending 
consideration, and, it was hoped, joint 
action with other members of the Ivy

The main weakness of this year's 
team will be lack of height. The av- 
erage height of the squad is close to 
C, feet but there is a lack of big men. 
The shooting of Prevey, Mosychuk, 
and Kaminski should make up for 
this lack of height.

The Varsity Cross Country team 
finished 19th in the IC4A Champion- 
ship held at Van Courtland Park, 
New York. Although 37 schools en- 
tered teams — out of an eligible 64 — 
the competition encountered there 
was the keenest yet met by the Red- 
men Harriers. Coach Derby's hopes 
for a better score were shattered 
when Freshman Burt Lancaster was 
forced to drop out of the race due 
to an ankle injury he received just 
two days before the race. 

Harry Aldrich was the first Red- 
man to cross the line for 'Massachu- 
setts when he finished 56th, out of 
250 who started. The other positions 
earned by the Redmen were: Hank 
Knapp 83rd; Halsey Allen 99th; 
George McMullin 122nd; George Cod- 
ing 170th, and Bob Steere 188th. It 
is interesting to note that had Lan- 
caster finished where he was ex- 
pected, the Massachusetts team score 
would have been eleventh. 

This was the Redmen's last meet. 
The school can be proud of their out- 
standing record and fine display. The 
prospects for next year look excellent 
and the loss of Captain Allen will 
be made up for when the Freshman 
team, led by Bill Conlin, joins the 
Varsity Squad— that is if Uncle Sam 
doesn't step in first. 

Larry Litwack 

Well, now that the treadmill is 
going around again, let's take a look 
at a couple of things that have at- 
tracted my attention in the past 
week or so. First of all, what a dif- 
ference a break makes! 

Burt Lancaster, star of the var- 
sity cross country team, was out 
practicing on the Friday before the 
1C4A meet in New York. On his way 
in from practice. Burt spied a soc 
Mr ball lying on the ground. Despite 
the fact that he is not a soccer play- 
er, he started to kick the ball. Un- 
fortunately, he slipped and his foot 
hit the ground instead. This tem- 
porarily sidelined the Redmen ace, 
but he was still able to start the 
race on Monday. 

Going through a woody and rocky 
stretch of the course during the 
race, Lancaster completed his circle 
of bad breaks as he was thrown off 
balance by the man next to him and 
| hit his bad leg on a rock and was 
thrown to the ground. He got up, 
continued out of the woods, and then 
dropped out of the race at about the 
two mile point just as the rest of the 
pack were up ahead getting ready 
for Cemetery Hill. 

The ironic part about the whole 
thing was the fact that the man who 
threw Lancaster off balance was a 
member of his own team. If Lan- 
caster had finished where he prob- 
ably would have on the basis of us- 
ual past performances, the Redmen 
might have finished eleventh instead 
of nineteenth. This really shows 
what a difference a break makes! 

not expect to compete with the 
schools around Boston, Springfield, 
or any other area which have suf- 
ficient space to practice on. The 
team must have a permanent place 
where it can get ei.ough practice to 
give a creditable showing. Despite 
the fact that the team lost every 
game last year, the men still deserve 
another chance to make good. 

Secondly, the school cannot expect 
to have a decent hockey team until 
they hire a decent coach. By decent, 
I mean one that is trained to coach 
hockey. This is not an attack against 
last year's coach; it is merely an ob- 
vious statement about the coach of 
any varsity sport. 

, Perhaps the athletic- department is 
right in putting the emphasis on 
the major sports of football, basket- 
ball, and baseball. However, in every 
other school of major size, varsity 
hockey is also considered to be | 
major sport. From what I under- , 

stand, there are enough men here «t I Li f tit* BriggSIIien

Landy, Center Score; 
Frosh Soccer Ties 2-2 

In a recent game, the Frosh soc- 
cer team tied Monson Academy in 
a hard fought game 2-2. The game 
was marked by tight defensive play, 
with neither team getting many 
shots at the goal. 

Joe Laruly scored early in th- 
game to give the Little Indians a 
lead. Monson came back quickly to 
tie the game with Dick LaFerrien- 
getting the score. Soon afterward.-.,

chance they deserve.

Into 7th in IC4A's 

The Freshman Cross-country team 
led by Bill Conlin, who finished 
eighth, oame in seventh in the IC 
4A Championship held at Van

course represented 14 colleges. The 
other Redmen to finish were: Dino

sey" Stengle, 43rd, Vern Bruneau, 
f.oth, Pete Tripp, 57th, and Paul 
Maclnnis, 64th. 

Lose Finale 2-1 

The frosh lost their final game of 
the season to the Tufts frosh 2-1. 

The little Indians played one of 
their best games of the season, but 
It wasn't enough to stop the hard 
fighting visitors. 

The game was predominantly that 
of tight defensive play. Dick Cen- 
ter booted in the only goal for the 

In th> won and lost column, the 
little Indians had a relatively poor 
season this year. Their record was 
one win, five losses, and one tie. 
However, all but one game was very 
close and could have gone either 
way. Many of the frosh also have 
gained valuable experience which 
should help them in their try for 
the varsity next fall.

The second point that aroused my 
interest was the winter sports sched- 
ule which was just released. Notable 
for its absence on the schedule was 
varsity hockey. Upon asking around I 
among informed sources, I found 
that the University is not going to 
have a varsity hockey team this 

It is a rather sad commentary on 
the state of athletics here at the 
University when hockey is cut out 
as a varsity sport. According to 
these sources, there is no money to 
pay for hockey. However, if that is 
the case, may I ask the very per- 
tinent question as to where the $20 
appropriation that each student 
gives to the athletic department is 

Let's go into the situation a little 
more carefully. First of all, the 
school cannot have a varsity hockey 
team until the school builds an in- 
door rink for them to practice on. 
Last year, the squad had to travel 
to Springfield in order to practice. 
This they were seldom able to do.

Tom from an Amherst clothier. 

Tom is essentially the proverbial 
''man behind the scenes" for the ath- 
letic department. As well as issuing 
and colh-cting the gear and making 
minor repairs, he cooperates with the 
coaches to see that all necessary 
equipment is at hand. His position 
frequently involves working at night, 
and Sunday morning often finds him 
still collecting materials from the 
Saturday game. This in itself is 
neither a small nor an insignificant 
responsibility. Hut Tom also helps 
out with additional duties not re- 
quired of him, appreciated by both 
coaches and players. If a player 
breaks a cleat, on the field, Tom re- 
pairs it so that he can return to the 

Tom's good disposition makes, him 
popular with all the men. His inter- 
est in the teams centers not only on .supplies, but follows their pro- 
gress closely throughout the year. 

Mr. Ben Ricci of the athletic de- 
partment has nothing but the deep- 
est appreciation for the interest and 
efficiency Tom displays. Let's add our 
thanks to the man who prepares the 
machinery that makes possible our 
Saturday afternoons at the football 
field, our basketball, soccer, and track 
viewing pleasures.

WMUA Will Install 
FM Radio Station 

Plans for the installation of an 
FM radio station on campus 
announced recently, following a 
WML A Policy Board meeting. 

A 10 watt Educational KM trans- 
mitter, part of new electrical engin- 
eering equipment, is now being in- 
stalled in the station's South College 
Studios. The transmitter is expect- 
ed to be in operation by next semes- 

Conversion units will be placed in 
each of the dorms to enable students 
not now owning KM receivers to gel 
the station on existing AM sets. 

"KM broadcasting will provide 
higher quality programs through 
elimination of static and interfer- 
ence," asserted Gene Ryan, Station 
Manage i- of WMUA. "At the same 
time," he continued, "we will reach 
many new listeners in this part of 
the state. High-quality, non-com- 
mercial programming, combined 
with a large listening audience will 
give the Univ. of Mass. much favor- 
able publicity," he concluded. 

Nominees Announced 
For Class Elections 

Preliminary elections for class of- 
ficers were held on Monday, Nov. 19. 
Ir. cases where only one name ap- 
peared on the ballot the students

Crusade For Freedom 

The Crusade for Freedom lias started its local drive today. 
The Collegian wishes to point out, to the best of its aHlity, the 
significance of this campaign and to urge all-out support of this 
most worthy organization. 

For those who do not know just what the Crusade for Free- 
dom is, we shall endeavor to give a brief explanation of it. It is 
a challenge to world Communism, an activity to break down Com- 
munist propaganda, a means of presenting Truth to a deceived 
world. The tool of the Crusade for Freedom is Radio Free Europe, 
a 136,000-watt, medium-wave broadcasting station, which^ is 
beamed to countries behind the Iron Curtain. These countries, 
under the control of Communism, are the ones which most need 
to understand the true facts of democratic living. 

It is important in these chaotic times, when the Communists 
me so busily permeating the western world with lies, that the 
voice of freedom and democracy get through to clarify and to rec- 
tify these false conceptions. Radio Free Europe has a program 
which aims at such an outcome. This station is supported by the 
Crusade for Freedom. 

We shall be asked to support the Crusade for Freedom on 
our campus during the next week. As peace-loving citizens of a 
free world, it is our duty to aid this program in any possible way. 
In supporting the Crusade for Freedom we are helping to dissem- 
inate ideas of a free society and helping to stop the germ of Com- 
munism from penetrating any farther than it has so far. 

The Collegian, as an organ of public opinion, is giving its all- 
out support to the Crusade for Freedom in hopes that it may lead 
others to undertake what it considers a cuty of all loyal Americans. 
We must persuade people in Communis -oppressed lands that our 
way of life is the better way. We can (!o this by presenting the 
truth and invalidating the lies of the Teds. 

As General Clay asks in seeking r pport for the 1951 cam- 
paign: "Shall our children and grandchi lren be crushed by Com- 
munist tyranny, or shall we pass on to Jiem their rightful heri- 
tage of freedom?" 


by Selma 

Tin- We&Uftm Argus: 

"Many students, although they 
have attended classes for several 
y.ars, do not realize the importance 
that a Professor places on oral class 
participation. Or, if they do, they 
timi themselves stymied as to what 
to say. 

"First of all, it is a help if the 
■alignment has been read. This is 
not necessary, however, as you will 
sec In participating in a discussion 
though, it is important to be recog- 
nized by the instructor in charge. 
This is usually accomplished by firm- 
ly and defiantly raising the hand. If 
the ProfeaiOT ignores you, do not 
falter! Your arm may grow tired, 
but this is easily remedied by alter- 
nating the left and right arms. The 
instructor cannot ignore you for- 
ever. Sometimes a slightly pleading 
look t-an he utilized. Tt is best to 
practice this beforehand in front of 
a mirror in the privacy of your room 
in order to achieve the right effect. 
Otherwise the professor mi^ht inter- 
pret the expression as an onrush of 
nausea or something. Sometimes a 
loud couirh will bring his gaze in- 
advertently in your direction. If 
this happens, don't wait for him to 
call upon you. Seize upon the glance 


as a si; i of recognition, and leap 
into you ■ spiel. By all means, do 
not fidge about in your chair. This 
is consid-red bad taste by all con- 

"Once you have been called upon, 
speak at length and with great 
vagueness. Be sure to have several 
quotations at hand, however irrele- 
vant, by such standbys as Santa- 
yana, Hyakawa, Korzybsky, and 
Whitehead. These men can be ap- 
plied to practically any subject. Be 
abstract, otherwise you may find 
yourself pinned down to facts or in 
other embarrassing situations. 

' Yo i will find that if you volun- 
teer information often enough, the 
instructor will seldom ever pop a 
surprise question at you, unless you 
are caught dozing. If he should, how- 
ever, do not be phased. Say •<wm 1 '- 
thing. The word "well" is usually 
sufficient. Another standard is, "I 
don't quite understand the question, 
sir." There will come the moment, 
however, when you must speak up. 
Then he sure to have the essence of 
your statement consist of an accum- 
ulation of agreements with what the 
instructor has just been saying. This 
method rarely fails. Some professors 
do like originality, or at least pro-

Concert . . . 

Coulinu.cil fftini i>n<je 1 

The musical comments of the u 
tists put the audience at ease to er, 
joy the performance. 

Anticipating the possible lack 
urbanity of the listeners, Mr. Gear 
hart warned them that there wai 
place in the middle of the Bach I* 
hide and Fujjtie in C Minor \vh: 
sounded like the end but wasn't. K 
must have heard about the Ruin: 
stein Concert last year. However, 
eager as the audience was to applau< 
it waited until the pianists remov 
their fingers from the keyboards 
fore bursting forth their acclaim. 

I enjoyed visualizing the America 
in Paris. I saw him dodging tax 
drinking at sidewalk cafes, meandt: 
ing from the Left Bank to the Rich 
Bank, from the Latin Quarter to th- 
Champs Ely-sees. 

Between slamming doors and fa. 
ing benches, Morley and Gearha:- 
rendered Saint-Saens' Variations or 
a Theme of Beethoven and Rachnia 
inoff's Prelude in G Minor with dt 
feeling and emotion. With the latt 
the concert reached its climax, in :r.; 
opinion. True artistry was display.: 
in the expert interpretation of thi- 
difficult arrangement. 

With the flowing Strauss Waltzt 
came visions of a lightly dancin: 
chorus of courtiers. 

The audience had to have more o: 
Morley and Gearhart, and the ar 
tists were willing to comply. The; 
took the Three Blind Mice through 
all of the stages from little Mickey 
to the big, fat rat and back. TV 
Bumblebee literally glided with th 
able assistance of their nimible fing- 
ers, and our favorite nursery rhymes 
took on a new look as they closed 
their well-planned, well-executed, arc 
well-received program.

UM Statesmen 
Increase Size 

The Statesmen, the University 
double quartet, is to increase its per- 
sonnel to 12 members, it was an- 
nounced by Dave Tarr, director of 
the group. 

Aiming at the best in close-harm- 
ony vocalizing, the Statesmen have 
established themselves as a tradition 
on campus with a repertoire typical- 
ly including barbershop, spiritual, 
novelty, college, and popular SOngS. 

The present member! of the group 
are: I'ave Tarr, '58, director; Rick 
Wilson, '52, business manager; Hill 
Cody, *5Sj Jack Cody, 7»1 (grad stu- 
dent) ; Hill Mas.sidda, T>2; Al Good, 
'.I; and Chris Thatcher, '54. 

The four additional men will serve 
as a reserve for the present mem- 

bers and will participate in campus 
performances. They will also be elig- 
ible for advancement by competition 
and will aid the group in its efforts 
to achieve greater success. 

Off-campus performances are fre- 
quent due to the increasing demand 
by alumni groups, men's and wom- 
en's organizations, and nearby col- 
lege functions. Last year's perform- 
ances were highlighted by a very 
successful program given at a Gov- 
ernor's luncheon in Boston.

scheduled tryouts Wednesday, Dae.

dorm may invite either one or two 
department! in their entirety or a 
mixed group from various depart- 
ments. The committee will attempt 
to satisfy these requests and act as 
the organizing unit. 

A total of $300 has been set aside

Foundation for student-faculty rela- 
tionships. The remainder not given

Crusade for Freedom . . . 

Continued fiHnn puge 1 
a freedom-station in Asia in order 
to reach Communist China. 

The Crusade for Freedom reaches 
the people behind the Iron Curtain 
in still another way. Pamphlets, 
dropped by controlled balloon flights 
over specific points, are reminders 
to those people that Americans are 
supporting them in their fight 
against Communism. 

The sound of the Freedom Bell, a 
replica of our Liberty Bell, which 
now hangs in West Berlin City Hall, 
has become the distinctive symbol 
1 for Radio Free Europe. At the end 
of each program four notes of the 
bell are heard with the words "This 
was the Freedom Bell to remind you 
that you are listening to Radio Free 
Europe." In addition, each day at 
noon the Freedom Bell sends its 
voice across the Soviet zone.

Open House Teas 
Start Rush Season 

With the dr«aded Ivan's Saturday 
approaching, campus chatter centers 

mainly almut sorority rushing ami 
who can participate. The answer is 
thai all freshmen girls and trans- 
fers who attain at least a 7<> aver- 
age, cannot afford to miss the thrill 

of rushing. 

Even if you have definitely decid- 
ed that sorority is not for you, take 
advantage of the informal sorority 

open house on Sunday night, Decem- 
ber 2. This will be your opportunity 
to meet the girls and see the differ- 
ent houses. If you missed Round 
Robins, be sure to get to as many 
houses as possible Sunday night, 
and if you selected a few favorites 
at Sound Robins, drop in at those 
houses so that you can get to know 
the girls better. 

The dorms and sorority houses 
will be open Monday afternoon from 

:> to ")::{o. Sorority members will be 
around to visit with you, and they 
will expect you to feel free to drop 
in at your favorite houses. 

Tuesday night the sororities will 
go all out for costume parties. They 
are loads of fun and everybody has 
a wonderful time. Try to make it. 
The invitations usually give you a 
hint as to the theme of the party. 

The Silence Period starts at 12 
noon, December 5 and extendi to 
7:00, December '">, with the excep- 
tion of Closed Date. Invitations for 
Closed Date will be delivered to the 
dorms and Mem Hall at 12:15. Re- 
plies will be collected at 2:00. 

On Thursday, December <'», prefer- 
ential bidding will take place at 
Mem Hall. Invitations to pledging 
will he delivered to the dorms and 
Mem Hall at 4:00. 

That's the rushing schedule. Just 
live short days, but they are packed 
with so much excitement and sus- 
pense, and so many good times, that 
you'll remember them for a long 
time. Plan to join in rushing. You'll 
be glad you did!

Cantor are the new appointees to the 
Constitution Committee, announced 
President Pehraon. When Dean Cur- 
tis pointed out that there are no 
women on the committee, the Sen- 
ate accepted the appointments of 
President I Vinson with the provis- 
ion that women be considered for 
appointment to the committee. 

President Pehrson suggested that 
a proposal contained in a Collegian 
article entitled "Your Student Gov- 
ernment" be referred to the Consti- 
tution Committee. The proposal deals 
with the service and control of stu- 
dent activities. The matter was re- 
ferred to the Constitution Commit- 
tee for further study. 

Also referred to the Constitional 
Committee, after a motion by Art 
Alintuck, were the amendments 
proposed to the student body in a 
referendum last year. If these amend- 
ments are again passed they will be 
presented to the students a second 
time for their approval. 

The new representative for th" 
married students, Don Ware, was 
introduced to the Senate. 

Art Alintuck motioned that the

Help Truth Fight Communism 

The Christmas Spirit is almost upon us again now that snow 
has fallen and the pond is frozen over. We can do our little bit to 
make this a merrier Chritmas, or at least one closer to that "peace 
on earth" for which mankind has been seeking throughout the 
centuries by joining the Crusade for Freedom. 

As we have stated here before, the purpose of the Crusade for 
Freedom is to put an end to Communism by disseminating Truth 
through the countries behind the Iron Curtain. By Radio Free 
Europe and Radio Free Asia, two broa asting systems which 
tell the truth about Democracy, our allien may influence the opin- 
ions of oppressed people across the seas. 

The Crusade for Freedom campaign I now in effect on our 
campus. Students and faculty members will be approached to sup- 
port this worthwhile drive during the nex: few days. We can only 
repeat the words of the campaign slogar : Join the Crusade for 
Freedom and help Truth tight Communism. 

Faux Pas . . . 

Cnntimutl from pn<n I 
What a time those "ole-timo" col- 
umnists had! One of them continual- 
ly harped on the ever Intriguing sub- 
ject of s<x, ami told his manajfin,? 
editor what he really thought of hirn 
ripht there in print. Words were not 
spared in the student column. 

This description of one of the 
main characters of Mr. Forrest's 
column of April 11. WO should jcive 
you an idea: Mrs. Cynthia Apple- 
thwaite, M.S.U. 1840, very attractive 
lady, 15 ft., 4 in., !>"> pounds, straight 
grittled Kiev hair, one eye, and an 
■darai apple where her chin should 
be. She carries her years well, and 
i-; self-confessedly widely experi- 
enced in affairs of the heart." 

Some of the other stuff that got 
into print made the columns look 
like the newspaper version Of "Voo- 
doo." In answer to the annual dis- 
ease of senioritis one columnist 
wrote. "A senior stood on a railroad 
track, the train was cominjr fast. The 
train got off the railroad track to 
let the senior pass." 

A tribu;.' to a faculty member 
was paid in a 11*38 edition of the 
Cnlhuinn when columnist Joe Bart 
wrote: "Talking in the reading rooms 
has reached the point it seems, 
where the students themselves arc 
protesting. Thank God for Basil B. 

That about brings us briefly up to 
the present] but for future years, 
if you have any ideas that could be 
explored and recorded for posterity, 
send it along.

A few days ago we found a 1!>48 
Collegian with the enclosed cartoon. 
Since our courageous women stu-

may lead them to greater heights.

UM. Scrimmage New Britian 
In Preparation For Opener 

The University of Massachusetts basketball team opens its 
season tonight with a game Krimmage against New Britain 
Teachers College. This game will be played under regular game 
conditions, but it will not count in the records. 

The Ballmen have been rapidly rounding into shape, and to- 
night's scrimmage should be a good test for the team. The regular 
season begini Saturday with North 

tern meeting the Kedmen at the 
cage. The UMass freshman club will 
play tonight meeting the New Britain 
Jayvees starting at *>-.:w.

with the performance of the team

The shooting of Rernie Kaminski. 
and the rebound work of Ed Concei- 
jon and Rill Stephens were features 
of the practice sessions. 

Tonight's starting lineup will be 
predominantly sophomore quintet 

lour sophomores will share starting 
honors with Rill I'revey, who is the 
only returning starter from last 
year's club. Rill will hold down th • 
all important center position. At 
forwards Coach Rail plans to start 
Henry Mosychuk and Ed Conceison. 
Starting guards will be Malcolm 
Macleod and Rernie Kaminski. Bill 
Stephens will see plenty of service 
at the forward post. Ray Gunn and 
Frank Rarous will be capable sub- 
stitutes for Kaminski and Macleod. 

The club is in good physical shape 
and the boys are optimistic over the 
chances for a highly successful sea-

Mermen Meet BU 

The U. M. swimming- team is ra- 
pidly trying to round themselves in- 
to shape for their first meet against 
R. U. next Friday. 

The swimming team has had more 
than their share of bad luck with 
cnlds and other sicknesses hamper- 
ing their practice and conditioning. 

Coach Joe Rogers has the nucleus 
of last year's team, which had a 4- 
4 record with two narrow losses. 

For free-stylers, Coach Rogers has 
Rartlett, Jacque, Prokopowich, War-

far, nothing has been done about pro-

is done, or there is a public state-

ting the team out, my typewriter 
keeps rolling.

Tommy is one of the !inr>t men I

one ^'ho wants to question his foot-

the football team. 

It's too bad that we were not in 
the Yarke.- Conference this year. Bob

good enough to make the Williams

have been a shoo-in for the Confer-

slightly behind the times.

Someone might draw the impres- 
sion from reading this column that 
1 did not particularly like the Physi- 
cal Education department. That the- 
ory is entirely wrong. All criticisms 
offered herein are strictly construc- 
tive. With that out Of the way, here 
we go! 

Number one — the varsity hoekey 
team that is operating in the mists 
of the never-never land. It is a sad 

commentary on the state of athletics 

here at the University when an ath- 
letic department can't even keep a 
varsity sport going because of lack 
of funds. All right, so our other var- 
sity teams are the best equipped in 
the area. That still doesn't make 
them winning teams, and it still does 
not compensate for the lack of a 
hockey team. 

There are men in the University 
who want to play intercollegiate 
hockey. There is equipment available 
for them. There is ice available for 
them either on the college pond or 
Cranberry Pond at the foot of the 
Mt. Toby range. The next step is up 
to our Director of Athletics. 

He has said that interested men 
can use the name of the University, 
and can have all available equipment 
if they have a manager to be respon- 
sible for it. However, he has said 
nothing about money. It is practic- 
ally impossible to run a varsity sport 
without money. There could be no 
trips to other schools, and there could 
be no practices in the Springfield 
Coliseum without the necessary funds. 
There would probably be someone in 
the school with the necessary exper- 
ience to be a coach. Unless money 
is made available for them, it is rath- 
er futile to form a team. 

It is not too late to work out at 
least an unofficial schedule. The men 
deserve the chance to play. It is bad

New Fraternity Move 
Needs Upperclassmen 

The move started by the Inter- 
fraternity Council to establish a new 
fraternity on campus has advanced 
rapidly this week. Approximately 30 
men have expressed an interest in the 
new organization. Since most of these 
nun are freshmen, however, then 

Tonight is the Military Ball! 

Almost 600 couples aiv expected bo attend the Hall tonight at the Amherst (,ym, where they 
will hear the featured music- of Will Bradley and his band. 

The new Air Force uniforms, coupled with one of the largest attendances in the history ol the 
Ball, should make it a highlight of the social season at the University 

The judges will be ROTC cadets chosen by the Honorary Colonel Committee. Ihese students, 

though already chosen, are not yet 
aware that they are judge*, not until 
the Hall itself will they be notified of 
this. They will then he told to oh 
serve the five candidates, to decide 
who they think is the prettiest, and 
to hand in their decisions for the 
final counting. No one judge will 
know who the others are. 

In addition, the music should he 
just sbout the sweetest and smoothest 
that hat been heard at a Mall for a 
long time. 

Will Bradley has one of the lew 

hands that specialize in this kind ><f 

danceable music. He believes that 

"people who pay their way to hear 
me should get danceable music ami 
not novelty tlinei or progressive 

While Will and his hoys are rest- 
ing, Lea Klgart, the "trumpeters' 
trumpeter" will keep everyone danc- 
ing with music supplied hy his fine 
quintet Les Is well known for his 
rich, dreamy arrangements of popu 

lar melodies. 

The only interruption of the danc- 
ing, for a few short minutes, will be 
the presentation of the cloak to this 
year's winner of the title of Honor- 
ary (Vfrjn H~trr *"!*• Y*** 1 * « , «>I«*" > 1. 
Joan Hobart. 

Also at this time, the gifts will be 
presented to the five competing girls, 
and the colonel will take two tickets 
out of the ticket box. The couple to 
whom these tickets belong will re- 
ceive the two handsome door prizes. 

The dancing will then continue on 
until 1:00 a.m.

The election of class officers vras 
postponed for the second time by the 
Student Senate at its meeting this 
week. The elections will now be on 
Monday evening. Hank Walters, new 
election chairman, said that this ac- 
tion was necessary "because of the 
mess that the election is now in." 
When he asked for volunteers from 
the senate to help prepare the bal- 
lots for Wednesday, only five xena- 
s torn could find time to do their duty. 
The election was originally sched- 

a great need for upperclassmen

Holiday Pageant 

The annual "Nativity Scene", 
combining pantomine and legend and 
attempting to create the same ef 
feet as a religious painting, will be 
piesented next Wedmnday night 
from 8-8:45 in Old Chapel Auditor- 
ium. The Christmas pageant, under 
the sponsorship of the French Club, 
has been a tradition on cam pu* since 
before the war. 

Historically, the pageant repres- 
ents one. of the most important de- 
velopments in the evolution of the 
early stage. Nearly 1000 years ago 
during the middle ages, the medie- 
val theater consisted of just such

The officers you pick to load your class represent you. The 
amount that they do for the class and their efficiency in office is 
your responsibility. It is Up to you to make sure that the right 
persons arc elected and the only way to do this is to get out and 

Class elections have been postponed until next Monday night. 
At this time we will all have the opportunity to vote on those we 
want to see in ollice. It is important that each one of us carefully 
considers the candidates in light of their qualifications for leader- 
ship and their character. We must disregard the superficial char- 
acteristics which are not pertinent to the issue at hand. We should 
also try not to be influenced by friendship or organizational bonds. 

Class elections may seem trite and unimportant to many of 
us but it is no doubt because we have failed to think about the 
real meaning behind them. Now more than ever before we should 
train ourselves to take an interest in the matters of our commu- 
nity. It is just as essential a part of our education as learning to 
read or write, and it is essential for our own protection. To main- 
tain the methods of democracy which we have inherited, we must 
exercise them and the present is the time for us to begin. 

A marked degree of apathy among the students has been 
evident in previous class elections and other college affairs which 
demand voting. Let's change this by exerting just a little extra 
effort and taking a few minutes to cast our ballots. It's for our 
Own good. G. M. 


by Selma 

The KilikUik: 
Dear Mom, 

"It's getting rather difficult to 
write you now that I'm a sophisti- 
cated sophomore and have left be- 
hind all the peculiar ideas of an in- 
significant freshman. But since I 
have so much time on my hands I 
shall try to make my weekly letter 
interesting. Of course that threat of 
no letter, no allowance is also influ- 
encing me more than you realize. 

"Life as a sophomore is very com- 
plicated and serious and often I wish 
that I too might be as carefree and 
gay as those lucky seniors who nev- 
er seem to have anything to do. Sen- 
ior men seem to be so very happy 
now knowing they can all accept po- 
sitions with Uncle Sam's stimulating 
business venture. 

"Things have changed around 
here. I don't believe I told you that 
I cat at the Commons this year in- 
stead of Fiance Hall. Don't get ex- 
cited about my safety because they 
have my address and have promised 
faithfully to ship my body home free 
of charjie in case of — shall we say — 
"an accident?" 

"I'll tell you our Homecoming 
scheme if you don't breathe it to a 
soul. We plan to have the theme 
"Founder! Flounders In Its Fabu- 
lous Felicitation To The Faithful 
Fighten of Far-famed Football." 
We like it because it's so short and 

Improvements around here have 
been terrific. In the first place there 
have been only two rainy days since 


I've arrived, which goes to show that 
if you complain loud enough and 
long enough, the administration will 
come th. >ugh. I've also noticed how 
quickly the freshman women are 
learning ibout the "High Ideals" of 
this cam us. It isn't every class who 
tries to tie their counselors and the 
dean of women in their rooms dur- 
ing the first month of the first se- 

"You have asked about my class- 
es. The most fascinating is "An In- 
troduction to the Ways and Means 
of Making Life Interesting," com- 
monly known as folk dancing plus 
canine conversation with a little 
psychology thrown in. There are 
some truly heart throbbing charac- 
ters connected with the course. 

This year the college certainly 
reached its ideal of "A bigger and 
better outhouse burning" with most 
of the attention drawn to the "En- 
closure Movement," involving City 
Hall and three male students. 

In attempting to answer your 
question of what did I do with last 
week's allowance, I shall enumerate 
my expenses: Toe went to the Gen- 
eral Relief of A Starving Student on 
Sunday Night and the other $2.2") 
was donated bo the Society for Pro- 
viding Entertainment for Prevent- 
ing Sophomore Students from Be- 
coming Too Involved in the Science 
of Learning. 

Really, mother, this is every bit of 
knowledge I know. 

Your suffering sophomore.

Letters to the Editor 

To the Editor: 

Tuesday night the freshman bas- 
ket-ball team played a scrimmage 
game against the New Britain Jay- 

vees. The spectators were expecting 
frequent substitutions in order that 
the coaches could see how players 
new to the University would react 
under game conditions. Instead we 
saw the coaches satisfied to sit back 
and let six or seven men play a game 
which was certainly no credit to the 

These men are going to he the fut- 
ure varsity squad, and yet they do 
not have a chance to play even in a 
Freshman scrimmage game. Did the 
coaches think t'.iat this was a cham- 
pionship game in which unseasoned 
players could not be used? The 
In and of basketball that we saw cer- 
tainty did not indicate that it was. 
The players are all new to the Uni- 
versity and college basketball, and 
the blame certainly cannot be placed 
upon them.

stitution on Nov. 29 which sets up a 
entirely new organizational policy. 

The organization is now composed 
of two groups: the active group in- 
cludes all former members of Roister 
Doisters; the associate group com- 
posed of all new members is an ap- 
prenticeship organisation whose pur- 
pose is to give experience and an op- 
portunity for recognition in drama- 
tics. Under this new system all po- 
tential members of active Roistt i 
Doisters must serve in the associate 
group for one year before becoming 
an active member. 

The active group will continue to 
present two major productions a year; 
the associate group will present at 
least one annual production. The as- 
sociate group's production for this 
year will be three one act plays. 

The first meeting of the associat. 
group will take place on Tuesday,

Six Students 
Suspended For 

Vandalism Act 

Six students have been indefi- 
nitely suspended from the Uni- 
versity for vandalization of cig- 
arette machines, Dean Robert S. 
Hopkins reported yesterday. 

When questioned regarding 
the offense, Dean Hopkins said that, 
"Those responsible for the action 
have been apprehended and necessary 
disciplinary action has been taken." 

The problem of restitution was 
answered by the Dean of Men when 
he replied that, "The University is 
not subjected to more than normal 
responsibility. Direct restitution is 
being made to the cigarette company 
by the six students involved," ac- 
cording to Mr. Hopkins. 

The names of the six men have 
been withheld, and the immediate loss 
to the University Scholarship Fund 
has not as yet been determined.

"With every revolving year I am 
struck with the strange inconsist- 
ency of the words "Christmas Exam- 
ination,' " wrote Stephen Leacock in 
Colletjv l>ayx. "Here on the one hand 
is Christmas, good glad, old season 
with its little children dancing in j. 
world of magic round a glittering 
tree, and such a crisp gladness in 
the air that even the angular fac:>s 
of University professors are soft 
ened out into something approaching 
human kindliness. 

Here, on the one hand is Christ- 
inas. And here, 09 the other hand, 
are exams with their sleepless 
nights, crazy questions and crooked 
answers, set with the calculating 
cruelty of the inquisitor. Examina- 
tiom with their hideous percentages, 
their insulting distinctions of rank, 
and paid for in cold fees. 

Here is Christmas ami here are 
the Examinations. And the two don't 
go together. We can't alter Christ- 
mas. We've had it nearly two thous- 
and years now. Christmas we cannot 
alter; but the examinations we can? 
Why not? Can we not break down 
something of these rigid regulations 
that every candidate reads, shudder- 
ing, in the printed instructions on 
his examination book? 

I reached out and drew to me the 
hideous code of the examination reg- 
ulations. I read it over with a shud- 
der. I saw at once how, not only the 
regulations, but the very examina- 
tion papers themselves ought to be 
so altered that the old malicious 
ipirit might be driven right out of 
them and Christmas come to its own 
again even in an examination hall. 
Here is the way it is done: 
1. Candidates are permitted — nay 
they are encouraged to enter the 
examination hall half an hour after 
the examination has begun, and to 
leave it, re-enter it, walk across the 
room, jump across it, roll around in 
I it, lie down on it, tear their clothes, 
I mutilate their books, and, generally, 
! to make themselves thoroughly and 
! completely at home at the expense 
I of the University.

Tommy Eck Resigns 
As UM Head Coach 

In a surprise move early yesterday, Head Coach Tommy Eck 
announced his resignation as varsity football coach. The resigna- 
tion was submitted to President Van Meter early Monday morning 
and was released to the public at 11:15 a.m. yesterday morning 
over the wire services. 

Coach Eck announced that he had no immediate future plans 

after leaving the University. His re- 
tirement will go into effect August 
31 of this year. There was no reason 
given for his retirement. 

Director of Athletics Warren Mc- 
Guirk stated that he "regrets his 
(Eck's) leaving" and "that he has the 
greatest admiration for Tommy as 
a worker." 

According to Mr. McGuirk, a com- 
mittee will be formed, consisting of 
three faculty members, to act as a 
screening committee for applicants 
for the position as head coach. The 
new* release inserted a time limit of 
about one week. 

As far as is known at the present 
time, Mr. Eck's resignation will have 
no effect on the status of the two 
assistant coaches, Earl Lorden and 
Joe Masi, according to Warren Mc- 

Coach Eck came to the University 
in 1946 as head coach. In his first 
year, his team had a record of 2-1-1. 
In 1946 he became assistant coach 
under Walter Hargeshimer, who left 
at the end of the year to go to Okla- 
homa. In 1947, Eck racked up a 3-4-1 
record. This was matched in 1948. 

1949 saw the Eck coached eleven 
finish with a .'1-5 record that was also 
matched in 1950. This fall, the team 
finished with ■ 3-4-1 record to bring 
Eck's total record up to 18-23-4 for 
five years of coaching. 

In his college days, Tommy was 
All-Eastern center at Colgate during 
lim, and played in the Heraid-Trib- 
une Fresh Air Fund game again-t 
the New York Giants professional 
football team.

The Phi Kappa I'hi Scholarship

The only sour note of the entire

result in the discontinuance of such

In the past two issues of the Dqpesf. 

you've read of the broad opportuni- 
that are offered mechanical en- 
gineers in research and development 
work at Du Pont. 

This month let's look at oppor- 
tunities for men interred in any 
- tfae branches of plant engineering 
—such as maintenance, rx >wer, design 
. t ruction— or in production 

Efficient maintenance is an impor- 
tant cost factor in the continuous 
pro; -is of a modern chemical in- 
dustry . The M.E. is called ujxm to 
diagnose troubles, work out correc- 
tive mi and supervise repairs. 

Frequently he increases produc- 
Miing preventive nnin- 
i ■ i ~. So vital is this 

• otic that in one division of the Coin- 
par, men of all crafts, along 
with a routine maintenance group, 
spend almost all their time on it. 

One example of the problems fac- 
ing Du Pont engineers is the main- 

tenance of pumps made to tolerances 
ofO.0001" and operating at pressures 
up to 0000 p.s.i. 

In power work, also, problems re- 
quiring appli< at ion of media nical en- 
gineering principles arise. For in- 
stance, a metal roquiTBd in one chem- 
ical process is melted at HIM) K. by 

immersion heaters find by butane, 
which is expensive. Conversion to 
fuel oil presented the problem of 
complete combustion In the immer- 
sion chamber. Du Pont M.K.'s re- 
designed the beaten so combuetion

Production supervision attracts many 

mechanical engineers*. Men who havr* 

the ability and int ernet usually move 

into it" hy one or two routes: they ac-

plant's operations hy helping d"

In design and construction of 

chemical plants, mechanical engi- 
neering again is of major importance 
because of the wide variety of plants 
built and intricacy of their equip- 
ment. Engineers collect basic data, 
design and select equipment. They 
also supervise many steps of con- 
struction until the plant is operating.

my's resignation. As a man, 1 know 
few as fine; as a coach, his teams 
will testify to his ability, his friend-

with men. I hope that Tommy has 
better luck on his future positions. 
He deserves it. The athletic depart- 
ment hag proved that no man is in- 
dispensable. The result is the passing 
of an era. I for one was sorry to see 
it happen. Let's give some sort of 
tribute to a man who has given so 
much and received so little from the 
student body. Everyone deserves at 
least that much. 

This is the tribute of the Collegian. 
Let's hope that it is the voice of the 
student "body.

arranged chromatically, so tuned 
that when sounded together they pro-

the tones of several bells which he 
had brought with him, and explained 
the differences between carillon and 
chime bells. 

The first selection which Mr. Bige- 
low played on his carillon included 
a group of Christmas carols from 
different lands. France's "II est Ne, 
Le Petit Enfant"; England's "God 
Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen"; Flanders' 
"Hers He Is Born"; and America's 
"O Little Town of Bethlehem". 

Next the Bell Master traced the 
historical development of the bell 
from the primitive rattle to the car- 
illon and chime bells as we know them 
today. It was interesting to note that

nounced Photo Contest (Collet/inn 
Dec. 4) will be discussed as well as 
helpful tips in taking the contest 

are of the English chime variety. 

Mr. Bigelow demonstrated the ver- 
satility of the carillon by playing 
Schuman's "Traumerei" and he con- 
cluded with a rendition of "O Master 
Let Me Walk With Thee." 

The recital was sponsored by the 
Fine Arts Council.

Campus Interviews on Cigarette Tests

.his nimble-minded nutcracker almost 
tumbled for those tricky cigarette mildness tests. 
But he worked himself out of a tig'.it spot when 
he suddenly realized that cigarette mildness 
just can"t he judged by a mere puff or one single 
sniff. Smokers everywhere have reached this 
conclusion— there's just one real way to prove the 
flavor and mildness of a cigarette. 

It's the sensible test . . . the 30-Day Camel 
Mildness Test, which simply asks you to try 
Camels as your steady smoke— on a pack-after-park, 
day-after-day basis. No snap judgments. Once 
you've enjoyed Camels for 30 days in your 
"T-Zone" (T for Throat. T for Taste), 
you'll see why . . . 

After all the Mildness Tests . . .

write you through its column* <>n behalf of the entire University 
ami to express to you, the parents of our students, sincere hoKdaj 
greetings from sM <>t' us here at your State University. I wish I 
COUld write a personal letter to each family in which 1 could tell 
of the work and play of the particular student in which each is 
| interested, but with :i«ou students in the University, I an sure 
you will realize how dilticult this would be. and will accept instead 

this message which bears our heartiest Christmas greeting. 

Most of our students are making Rite progress this year. The 
Deans tell me that there is an atmosphere of seriousness pervad- 
ing the dormitories and classrooms. Our young people are develop- 
ing an earnest attitude toward their work which is encouraging 
to us all. They seem to be making their adjustments speedily and 
effectively. We expect few real failures this year because the 

young men and women who arc now with us are showing that 

they thoroughly appreciate the real objectives of their education. 

While creditable scholarship is, of course, the primary pur- 
pose Of the University, our students have not been idle in other 
important spheres of activity. In our physical education program, 
and in academic activities, such as dramatics, musical organiza- 
tions, dubs, and the Collegian, they have bee. busy and remark- 
able successful. 

The University of Massachusetts, as a St ate- supported insti 
tution, really belongs to all of us. to its students, to all the citizens 
of the' State, but particularly to the parents who have entrusted 
the education of their children to its care for this crucial period 
of their lives. We take this responsibility seriously. As a State 
Supported institution, we arc eager to serve you and particularly 
eager for vom mtereM Ri.d~*upp«rt m the work KS BM dang in 
giving our students a well-rounded general education ami training 
for the professions. 

1 want to extend this invitation to all of the parents o! our 
students to write me concermns any problems your children may 
be facing whirl, may not Lav. come to our attention, or to give 
me any ...formation you feel that we here at the University ought 
to have in order to make the University of Massachusetts a more 

Useful institution of higher learning for the young people ot our 
Commonwealth. Perhaps I shall not be able to answer all ol you. 
letters in person, but I can and 1 certainly shall forward you, 
letters to the appropriate member of our faculty and stall for 
personal reply. I want to extend to you a sincere invitation to 
visit our teaches and our administrative officials when yon come 
to the campus in person. 

Your sons and daughter* are ronrilftg home to you ror I hnsl 
mas. and with th.>m we semi our sincere greeting.

Our Christmas Present 

It's here al last, that long-awaited Christmas vacation. The 
trials and tribulations of putting out two newspapers a week 
added to those classes which are a requisite activity previous to 
the receipt of a degree, have put us into a state of complete ex- 

Before We retire for two weeks of rest and relaxation, we 
have for you this Christmas present in the form of a special issue 
of the Collegian. This is a present for all students to take home 
to show to their friends and families. 

In this issue we have embodied our usual campus news as 
well as a letter from the President of the University, a story about 
the Collegian alumni who have succeeded in the newspaper busi- 
ness, and some special Christmas pictures showing pre-holiday 
celebrations and scenes around the campus. 

We hope that our readers will take the Collegian home with 

them. This issue has been compiled for the purpose of introducing 
and better acquainting parents and friends of our students with 
the University. 

With this gift we wish you all the merriest Christmas and 
the happiest New Year possible. May we all pass the holidays in 
the traditional spirit of peace and goodwill.

PEACE ON EARTH NOTE: As a light touch in our Merry Christmas issue we have dug out of our office 
ilea the drawing above bv the noted cartoonist Francis Dahl of the Boston Herald. In February 1947 our 
campus, like most, was so flooded with veterans of World War II that the COLLEGIAN, in its usual helpful 
»ay, ran a feature article explaining to co-edn how to tell a married veteran from a single man. The article 
provoked Mr. Dahl into a cartoon on the subject. Its humor in still Rood, and it is also a reminder that this 
Christmas is the last in which a significant number of World War II veterans will be in college. Most of the 
homes- in the married veterans housing project on our campus have been torn down, and the remainder are

A weekly half-hour dramatic pro- 
gram may be the solution to 
WMUA's recent plea for more radio 
shows and Roister Doister's need for 
more activities. Mr. Stelkowitz of 
the English department has offered 
his assistance to the new phase of 
Roister Doister dramatic entertain- 

The exact date of the premier per- 
formance will not be announced un- 
til the group has several shows 
i .uly for presentation. Both the ac- 
tive and associate groups of Roister 
leisters will be taking part in this 
activity. New Roister Doister mem- 
bers go under the heading of associate 
members, while those who have been j 
member! in the past are called the 
active group. 

All those R.D.'s who are interest- 
ed in radio work are urged to atten 1 
ciate group meetings on Jan. 10 
and Feb. 14, and actives will gather

obvious needs of the University. One 
is for a catchy, spirited college soiiu, 
preferably ■ march, along the same 
lines as the University of Maine's 
"Stein Song". It should be suitable 
for both football games and Univer- 
sity Convos; in short, fit for every 
occasion. Two people may collaborate 
on words and music 

A prize of $25 will be awarded by 
Adelphia and Isogon, sponsors of the 
contest, if a suitable song is found. 
There is no closing date: entries will 
be judged as they come in and the 
prize will not be awarded until a 
satisfactory entry is submitted. 

The second contest is for a foot- 
ball cheer. It may be either ■ esriei 
of letters such as are used now; a 
one-word cheer, often thought note 
effective, such as the Bulldog cheer 
used by Yale; or a completely new 
idea. The prize here is also $2f> and

and his company, has been reported to hold its audience speil- 

bound. This is due iii ■ large part 

to the ever present drum rhythms, 
at times throbbing relentlessly, a1 
times teasing in their syncopation. 
The drums ere a veritable orchestra, 
pointing up the shifting patterns ,,f 
movement that sweep "Tropicnn.i" 

from beginning to end. The central 
effects, however, are created by the 
d incers thems» Ives. 

Behind the success of "Tropicana" 
li*? years of hard work by Telle) 
Beatty, its seelslmed composer and 
star performer. For years be planned 

this review and his entire career has 
been devoted to its preparation. 

A combination of intensive study 
of the dance with an equally in 
tensive study of the folk sources used 
ha.s resulted in an authentic expns 
■ion of Negro folk lore and dancing. 
"Tropicana", taken as a whole is a 
depiction of the Negro at work and 
at play. All the primitive dance 
rhythms of the Negro race find e\ 
pi« ssion in this work.

In Memoriam 


During the holidays the University lost a great teacher ami 
a distinguished scholar in the passing of Walter Everett Prince, 
emeritus professor of BngHsh. He had retired in 104!) after teach- 
ing Chaucer. Elizabethan literature and American literature for 

more than three decades. 

Prof. Prince met students with contagious enthusiasm and an 
inspired gift of eloquence that made his lectures legend. His 
classes kept to the edge oi their chairs waiting for the next peal- 
ing phrase, tn B sense lie never taught literature to his students, 
but transported them instead into the past where they lived it. 

Mr. Prince had fierce contempt for trivia, duplicity and double 

tli is reward has achieved the most 

■cholastieally, ext r a-curricularly, 
fraternally, and socially. The Ploi 
ida convention, held towards the end 
of December, was attended hy two 
TEP boys from the campus Jack 
Slatoff and Milt Crane. 

Tau I'i chapter is tentatively- 
planning a sleigh ride for this Sat-

is still on the ground !

The Treadmill 



by Larry Litwack 

Now that a new year is upon us, 

t behoovei roe to take a quick glance 

»ver the winter sports going on now, 

is well as several interesting side- 

To start with past thing! first, let's 
look at the vacancy in the position 

if head football coach at the I'm 
versity. To date, there has been no 

rihcial release Announcing ■ ntccea 
■or to Tommy Kck. The Boston papers 
nave been busily predicting the ad- 
vent of Charlie O'Rourlce, a former 
•tar uf the Boston College Sugar 
Howl team, who played under Ath- 
letic Director MeGuirk it Maiden 
High and is now assistant coach at 
Holy Cross. Hi- qualifications are an- 

lu.'.-tioned, but there has been no 
mention <>f him by the parties in- 

The screening committee, comprised 

• r McGuirk, Professor Ellert, Regis- 
trar Lanphear, and Don Allan are 
now in the process of screening ean- 

Kdates for the position. McGuirk will 

<>■ away next week for the N'CAA 

convention so that the final announce- 
ment is i.ot expected until on or 
a. .and Jan. IT. 

The second point to strike my at- 
tention was tin release of the All- 

N'ew England Soccer team. Notable 

for their absence were Al Hoelzel and 
Monk Wattanayagorn of the Briggs- 
men. Monk was one of the outstand- 
ing players on the team during the 
entire season. Al Hoelzel finished five 
goals ahead of his nearest competi- 
tor for top scoring honors in the 
NEISL. However, something went 
wrong somewhere since neither man 
even made the fourth team honorable 
mention. Once again the University 
has slipped up someplace in the mat- 
ter of recognition and publicity. 
Now back to the present. Some 

>f the fans are beginning to give up 

»n the basketball team because of 
their rather dismal record. However, 
I persomially can not see staying 

iway from the games. Captain Hill 
Prevey is one of the leading scorers 
in the country and is threatening all 
existing University records. 

The team already has displayed 
the best quality on any team — guts.

The team has proved that it can Ret 
up off the floor and come back swing* 
ing as it did in the Northeastern 
game, where despite the loss, the 

team was solidly supported by the 
fans. The team is like that. There 
Is no one man trying to steal all the 
glory, The team as a group has more 
team spirit than any similar group 
in my experience. These men de- 
serve the support of the fans. It is 
up to us to give them this support. 

It is pretty bad when a handful of 
Clark supporters can cheer more than 
l')(Kl students from the home team, 
^'t that is just what happened last 
Thursday at the Clark game. 

The varsity swimming team will 
make its third appearance of the 
year this week seeking their second 
win. The team opened with a win 
over Boston University, and then was 
sunk by their cross-town rivals at 
Amherst College. The Redman have 
the stuff and should start to open up 
in their coming meets under the ex- 
pert tutelage of Coach Joe Rogers.

Faux Pas . . . 


Continued from peg* i 

j cret design pencils were all but 
; chained to the chair after the stu- 
dent had just about signed out for 

them, ami then it happened. 

One of the lovable variety of in- 
structors got up on the platform to 
give winds of instruction, words ->f 
encouragement to the doomed men 
seated before him. With shaking 
voice he requested the proctors (sup- 
ervisor! of our infamous Honor Sys- 
tem) to distribute the question 
sheets. The manuscripts (six pages 
of multiple choice) were delivered 
almost at gun-point into our shaking 
hands, and the starting signal was 
given by the towering proctor-in- 
chief too late to stop half the class 
from going on to the second page. 

The silence was tremendous; you 
could hear a bar-bell drop. What 
was that? Methinks I heard a titter 
front] the far corner. Yes, for there's 
another, and another. The cause of 
the excitement'.' Well, take question 
XS for example. That one caused ac- 
23.6 tUal debate mi the Moor. Tell me, is 
10.0 the color of a blood corpuscle deter- 
i;.(i mined by drinking tomato juice or 
:k~i orange juice? Will playing basket- 
4.6 ball really give you lumpy toenails' 
'.\A\ Will the human heart stop if you 
2.0 run up three stairs backwards in ten 
2.2 seconds. 

Amherst Sinks 
UM Mermen 

The U. of M. swimming team was 
submerged by a powerful Amherst 
College swimming team to the turn.' 
of .'-1-21 at Piatt pool. 

The only firsts that the Kedmeii 
Captured were the (living won by Alt 

Belanger and the 206-yard back- 
stroke won by the reliable Hick 
( ornfoot. 

About the only thing they left out 
was the proper use of that perennial 
favorite cure for everything but 
pregnaney, "Hadaeold." Yes, fellow 
students, that is the impression that 
a tough final leaves you with, .his; 
think, you stay up and study the 
sports statistics, review the racing 
form, memorise the benefits of the 
steam bath, and then realize that it's 
no use anyhow, 'cause you have'nt 
gone to one phys ed period since 
faking your PFR. 

Chin up, old boy, the dartboard 
system may net you ■ passing grade. 
Just pray thai your instructor is a 
good marksman.

Guest Editorial 

Last year, the Student Senate sanctioned the formation of 
the University of Massachusetts Improvement Committee. This 
committee was to dedicate itself to the improvement of all campus 
facilities. Its strength was to he drawn from the support of the 
student body as a whole. The principles of this proposed organiza- 
tion were Rood but its founders discounted one element — student 
apathy. How are we going to conquer this multi-fanged monster 
which has plagued college campuses all over the country? 

Being a hardy soul, this reporter is going to hazard a plan 
by which improvements may be instituted effectively and still have 
the active support of students. Why not have a central council 
to which all campus organizations will send representatives? The 
benefits of such a plan can be numerous. First, this council will 
have as its foundation groups which are already in existence. It 
will not have to depend on participation by students as individuals. 
It is much easier to influence groups than it is to influence many 
individuals who may or may not have an active interest in any 
organization. Second, those who already belong to organizations 
have proved by the fact of membership in an organization that 
they are actively interested in some phase of University life and 
will make an excellent nucleus for the formation of the council. 
Third, communication of ideas and plans of action will be easier 
to disseminate when dealing with groups. 

This idea is not new. On April 28, 1 047, the Massachusetts 
State College became the University of Massachusetts through 
such a concerted effort on the part of t e existing groups on 
campus. But unfortunately, this was a tei >orary unification and 
depended on the issue concerned for its ex .ence. Once this issue 
was resolved, the unity dissolved. 

If made known, the issues now conf nting us are just as 
important as that of 1947. Two things mr . be made clear. One, 
that we do have important issues; and tw. that such an organi- 
zation will have the force to accomplish its a ns. This second point 
is extremely important in that it is nece.- try to eradicate the 
idea that no matter what is attemped the I suits are doomed to 

We call upon all those who profess to h we an interest in the 
well-being of the University to do something in the line of what 
we have proposed. This plan may have problems attached to it and 
may not be suitable. However, something should and can be done.

Your Student Government 

by John Heintz 

There has been a considerable 
amount of justified criticism directed 
toward the Student Senate as a re- 
sult of the class elections. There is 
no question but what the Senate, or 
at least some of the members, have 
been responsible for the way in 
which these elections were misman- 
aged. However, it is all over now. 
There is, now at least, an efficient 
chairman of the election committee 
who has done all in his power to 
correct the election situation. The 
whole affair is just about straight- 
ened out. Let's proceed to forget this 
happened and just draw a lesson 
from it. 

To date, 15 major items have been 
referred to various senate commit- 
tees. Out of these only four have 
been reported back. Two others have 
been reported and recommitted for 

solidated into one Activities Depart- 
ment has also been pigeon-holed by 
the committee, through no action. 

This is only one of the committees 
of the senate. Several of the others 
have done just as little to settle their 
business. Two constitutions ha ,- e 
been before the Activities committee 
for approval since last spring. Item 
after item may be cited. 

Thil is what is really making the 
senate ineffective this year. The sen- 
ators are just not doing their com- 
mittee work. The whole body cannot 
take up each individual item that 
comes up. It has nine committees to 
which matters may be referred so 
that it can have a sound, concrete 
proposal to work on when a matter 
is again taken up by the senate. As 
long as the committees fail to do 

further study. What has happened | their part, the senate will do noth- 
to the other items? J in K- 

The greatest amount of the work If the senators are really interest- 
of the student senate takes place in ; ed in their jobs, and I believe most 
committee. Are any of these com- j of them are, and if they are inter- 
mittees functioning? The constitu- 1 ested in making the senate a strong, 
tion committee alone has three pend- working body they will clear all 
ing items which, after being re- , these items out of the committees, 
ferred, seem to have been forgotten. The time has come when the senate 
First they were supposed to have ; can prove its usefulness. If it fails 
compiled all past laws of the senate j to take care of the matters before it 

and recommended changes in the 
constitution. This in itself is a long 
job. If they never get started it 
stands to reason they will never fin- 
ish. It was suggested that they re- 
submit the constitutional amend- 
ments defeated last year. To date: 

now and to use adequately the power 
it has, how can the administration 
be expected to give it more power? 
Let's face it, they have fallen down, 
but it is not too late to change the 
situation. It can be remedied in a 
short time and the senate can prove 

nothing. A proposal contained in this i itself to be more than a debating so- 
column that activities control be con- ciety.

Redmen, 72 - 63 

A fighting University of Massa-

to defeat at the hands of the Trinity 
Hilltoppers 72-63 at the Cage last 
Monday night. The Redmen were 
behind 4«.>-21» midway through the 
third quarter, but paced by the 
sharp shooting of Henry Mosychuk 
the Redmen pulled to within four 
points of a tie in the opening min- 
utes of the final quarter. However, 
Mosychuk and guard Malcolm Mac- 
Leod fouled out of the ball game 
and Trinity pulled away to wrap 
up the decision. 

Captain Bill Prevey was high 
scorer for the nipht with 21 points. 
Bill has now scored 168 points in 
seven games not counting last Wed- 
nesday's game with Worcester Tech. 
Henry Mosychuk threw in 18 points 
on 8 baskets and two fouls. His 
eight baskets came on only twelve 
shots from the floor. Bill Stephens 
also hit double figures with ten 
points. Bill's grtftl rebound work 
was the key to the Uedmen's third

Wednesday night as they rolled up a 69-42 victory over their arch 
rivals from Worcester Tech. The Redmen, scoring early and often, 
scored eight points before the Engineers could even find the range. 

Leading the Redmen attack was Captain Bill Prevey who 
scored 21 points to maintain his eight game scoring average at 
23 points per game. Second high for the squad was Bernie Kamin- 
ski who hit his highest total of the year in gathering 17 points. 

The entire squad saw action as Coach Ball cleared the bench 
of subs in an effort to keep the score down. However, the Redmen, 
thirsty for the kill, ran up a half-time lead of 85-12 as the vis-

Campus Interviews on Cigarette Tests 



lie thought they were trying to make him the butt-end 
of a joke when he was asked to judge cigarette mildness 
M itli a mere puff of one brand and a quirk sniff of 
another. The fancj foot-work didn't dazzle him ! He 
knew that the pinnacle of pleasure comes from steady 
smoking . . . and that there is onl> one test that gives you 
enough time to permit conclusive proof. Smokers 
throughout America have made the same decision ! 

It's the sensible test ... the 30-Day Camel Mildness 
Test, which simply asks you to try Camels on a 
day-after-day, pack-after-pack basis. No snap judgments! 
Once you've tried Camels for 30 days in your "T-Zone" 
(T for Throat, T for Taste I , you'll see why . . .

$3.95 to $6.95 

by Larry Litwack 

[o Hum! Another column rolls 
UmL Well let's see what we have 
the docket for today. 
First, the Winter Sports Banquet 
to be held Monday night at Green- 
h. At this banquet, letter awards 
will be made. However, the feature 
the evening will be the presenta- 
tion of two football awards and a 
cer award. In addition, the cap- 
ii of next year's varsity foot- 
ball, cross country, and soccer 
It ami will be announced. Should be 
a great evening. Since I know the 
recipients of the awards, I wont 
ke any predictions. 
N'txt, the preliminary to tonight's 
it against Maine should be an 
resting one. The fans will see 
Steve Kosakowski send hu Stock- 
bridge basketball team with a 2-1 
, cord against a University team 
„le up of the three best men on 
freshman club as well as the 
sity J.V.'s. Steve will be out to 
.peat his last year's win over the 
shinen. Coach Ball will be out 
• reestablish the supremacy of the 
I Diversity. Come early 'cause it 
-hould be a good game. 
Once again against Trinity, the 
aisity basketball team proved that 
could fight its way back into con- 
tention no matter how great the 
i licit is. Trailing by 20 points, they 
mated back to within four points 
I tie with a UJ point splurge late 
i. the third quarter One of these 
.•ays Lady Luck will smile on the 
Redman and reward them with some 
will earned wins. 

Meanwhile, Captain Bill Prevey 
mntinues to roll along. Going into 
the W.P.L game, it was 23.3 points 
per game. He is gradually approach- 
ing the records that he is miasing 
■ad should bust them all wide open 
within four games. Hank Mosychuk 
reached his peak on Monday as he 
hooped 18 points. Once the team 
-tarts really clicking they should 
be able to hold their own against 
all comers. 

The news that Larry Briggs is 
wing to start a ski team is wel- 
come news to many on the campu3. 
It is about time that the University 
expanded its operations to include 
sports. As for hockey, the letter in 
Tuesday's Collegian covered the mat- 
ter quite nicely. 

According to reports around the 
Cage, the varsity basketball team 
s going big time next year as they 
pen up against Holy Cross. It's 
M much easier just to commit sui- 

It looks as if the intramural sea- 
son is going to be a long hard pull. 
Art Mintz, the head of the intra- 
mural program, is in the midst of 
attempting to schedule better than 
three hundred games before June 
folk around. Should be interesting 
watch. Meanwhile, the Collegian 
•lonates one box of aspirins to Art 
his work. 
The varsity track team will make 
its first appearance of the year to- 
morrow as they travel to the Boston 
<iarden to compete in the Boston 
YMCA meet. Captained by Blitz 
Walters, the Redmen will be out to 
tter last year's record. One win 
1 do that. With the incoming 
shmen and the graduates of last 
u's freshman club the team should 
■vide plenty of excitement during 
e season. 

Well, since everything else around 
e is slowing up for the finals, I 
ht as well shut up and go home, 
saying, I do so.

second half with Joe Kreitas the only 
one to foul out, leaving the game 
with about four minutes to play. 

Pete Elliot helped to close the gap 
in the first half with some fine shots 
by Moe Lavalle who proved that he 
had the stuff as he scored 24 point.- 
for the night. Freitas did an out- 
standing job on the boards with Joe 
Hayden and Bob White (the latter 
just back from Korea) staging 8 
great exhibition of passing. White 
had 18 points for the night and con- 
tinually set up his team mates. 

The Aggies will make their MXl 
appearanee tonight SI they l'a«'e i 
combined freshman and junior var- 
sity as :» prelim to the varsity game. 
The team, under the expert leader- 
ship of Coach Steve Kosakowski, will 
go into the game as decided under- 
dogs against the stacked forces 
against them. However, the Blue and 
White will be out to upset the dope 
by proving that last year's win over 
the freshmen was n<> fluke.

STUDYING "Teflon" tetrafluoroethylene renin 
insulating material with special apparatus: 
K. F. Richards, B.S.Ch.E., Cornell '4H; and 
E. K. Holden, M.S.Ch.E., Delanure '48. 

To you as a student chemical engi- 
neer, what does this statement bring 
to mind: 

Nearly two-thirds of Du Pont's cur- 
rent sales are in products entirely 
or virtually unknown in 1930. 

Likely it suggests years of solving 
intriguing engineering problems, the 
designing of unique equipment, the 
carrying out of reactions under ex- 
traordinary conditions. 

But it should also suggest the op- 
portunities that will come to chemi- 
cal engineers in the future. For at 
Du Pont, new and better product*, 
are continually being developed. 
From today's extended program of 
fundamental research you can expect 
more neoprenes, more nylons, more 
plastics like "Teflon" tetrafluoro- 
ethylene resin. 

As these products come out of the 
laboratory, they will bring with them 
a succession of interesting and chal- 
lenging problems for the chemical 
efifhifcer. Problems that will arise 
out of their very newness. 

For instance, take nylon, the first 

CHECKING (i multi-Ktage carton -monoxide com- 
prennor uned in *emi-ivorkx operations: K. L. 
Stearns, B.S.Ch.E., Yale '49; and //. Peter- 
son, B.S.Ch.E., Northeastern tfnnvrsity '42. 

wholly synthetic organic fiber. In 
working out techniques for its com- 
mercial manufacture, there was 
practically nothing to go on. The 
compounds of which it was made, 
hexamethylenediamine and adipic 
acid, were essentialjy laboratory 
chemicals. Processes had to be de- 
vised to make them from cheap raw 
materials— benzene, hydrogen, air 
and ammonia. Large-scale pre para 
tion of nylon salt from amine and 
acid required going beyond th<- clas- 
sical unit operations. 

Here for the first time it was pro- 
posed to extrude a fiber with ext MOM 
accuracy from a melted polymer at 
290°C. At this temperature th<» pory- 
mer decomposes slowly. It had to be 
melted, pumped at 5(XX) p.s.i. pres 
sure through microscopic holes and 
cooled in a hurry. Otherwise the fiber 
would emerge discolored. 

The Du Pont chemical and me- 
chanical engineers and other men 
and women who worked with them 
ran into one difficulty after another. 
More than once they thought that the 

CHAHOINO experimental polymers to spinning 
machine: O. C Wetmore. Ph.D. I'hys.Ch .New 
York U. '44: I). A. Smith. B.S.M.E., Purdue 

project would have to be abandoned. 

However, it is basic in Du Pont 
people's philosophy not only to take 
on difficult pioneering problems, but 
to see them through. With nylon, 
this persistence paid off handsomely. 

Is this the kind of problem you'd 
like to attack, the kind of people 
you'd like to work with?

Senate Report . . . 

Continued from page 1 
Fred Hardy presented his resigna- 
tion due to his recent Appointment 
as a proctor at Greenough. Dean 
Curtis questioned the necessity of 

his resignation. President Poltroon 

explained that as a proctor, one be- 
comes a member of the administra- 
tion and therefore is not eligible to 
represent the students. Hardy agreed 
with Pehrson and the resignation 
was "accepted with regrets." Henry 
Walters also presented his resigna- 
tion "for personal reasons." 

Sophie Sowyrda made a motion 
that the senate help sponsor a guest 
speaker on foreign policy. This re- 
quest was unanimously rejected aft- 
er a heated debate. Although the 

they realized that such lectures at- 
tract too small a percentage of ' 

students to merit expenditures of | 
student funds, l'ehrson cxplai ] 
that this could let an expensive a 
embarassing precedent. 

Dean Curtis suggested that 

replacements for the resigning 

ators by the runner up in the ea 
ler senate elections. 

The constitution of the Canii 
Club was approved by the senate.

Carny Program Ready 
For '52 King Winter 

The state university's annual salute to Kin* Winter, Winter 
Carnival at the U of M, will give emphasis to cold weather si*>rts, 
with the addition of several new events this year, including extra 
sessions of competitive skiing and skating and an intra-mural 

included in concert bookings. 
The idea of selling the U of M by 
music has encouraged many poten-

\antages of the University. 

The University Chorale under the

Faux Pas 

by Bruce Fox 

Even the freshman looks back on j 
his early collegiate days with a slight 
-mile on his countenance. Yes, with 
almost a full semester under his belt 
he reminisces about the days when be 
iidn't know all the tricks of the stu- 
< nt trade. . 

How foolish he imagines himself to 
have looked to the classroom vets 
when he came to school last year foi- 
ls interview about this same time. 
The old boys were trudging through 
the snow to their next chant all b-n- 
lled in their warm dungarees, ski 
twots, and parkas, at the time he was 
nervously asking the way to the regis- 
trar's "interview" office. Mother had 
made sure he looked prim in his grad- 
uation suit, had a smart press in his 
.ants, and a sparkle on the new suede 
-hoes. The camel's hair overcoat kept 
he winter winds from biting through 
m as he passed cadets in short coats 
.n their way to drill. 

He remembers the days he spent 
going over those vocabulary books; 
the days his high school advisor ex- 
plained the horror he would suffer 
,ith the Scholastic Aptitude exams. 
(Those who have relatives in the 
<tate house probably won't have s-ch 
ielicate memories.)

Letter to the Editor 

To tin- Editor of the Collei/uur. 

For a presumably "hot attrac- 
tion", Tropicana left me about 33 
cold as the weather outside. I am no 
acs.hete and neither do I think were 
the other fifteen-hundred students 
who were there — at least up to the 
first intermission. So, seriously, why 
not have something in the way of 
conventional — and guaranteed en- 
joyable — concerts, even when they 
are extras. 

Merely as an afterthought, may I 
ask whose hot flash of inspiration 
brought this tropic aggregation to 
our frigid clime?

ftssocided CoBeftiate Press 


A recent issue of the Collegian carried a front page story on 
former ( olle-ian members who have found employment in news- 
paper, magazine and public relations work. More than twenty 
have found positions in these fields. Considering that we have 
only one course offered each semester and that most students may 
only take two of these, this appears to be a lemarkable achieve- 
ment. It is apparent from reading the article that most of these 
persons held editorial positions at one time or another on the Col- 
legian which proves that this responsible press is a Rood training 
gi\>un.l for that type of work. 

Can such courses in Journalism joined with work on the Col- 
legian supply enough training for enough students? We believe 
that our facilities for preparation in the field of Mass Communi- 
cations are at present inadequate. We also beiieve that a start 
now in expanding our facilities to include classes in Radio. Tele- 
usfoTi and more Journalism courses will go a long way in tilli 
a void which has Income apparent in recent vears. 

The ideal situation would be to have a school of Mass Com- 
muications under which we would have courses to meet all require- 
ments in this field. However, this would be too much to ask since 
there, are so many other pressing needs. We truly believe, how- 
ever, that it would not be too much of an effort by those respon- 
sible to supply the seeds for the ground which has already lain 
tallow too long.

Prevey Breaks Two Records As 
Redmen Drop Two Games 

by Jerry Goldman 

The University of Massachusetts basketball team met defeat 
twice this past weekend at the hands of Maine and New Ham|>- 
Bhire» two Yankee Conference rivals. As usual Captain Bill Prevey 

the star for the Redmen as he threw in 24 point! against 
Maine and 22 against New Hampshire. 

A near capacity crowd at the cage last Friday night saw a 

hot Maine team build up a large first half lead and go on to 
defeat the Kedmen 80-59. Maine hit on 21 out of 49 shots from the 
Boor in the first half as they built up a commanding 17-18 lead. 
The Redmen came back strong in the second half, but the ob- 
stacle was too great to overcome. Prevey, Bill Stephens and Henry 
\1 \ehuk all played fine games foi i 
Redmen. One of the greatest ova- 

ever heard in the cage was giv- 
,n Hill Prevey when he left the game 

in the final quarter. 
\ poor third period gave New 
Hampshire the ball game Saturday,! swimmers went down to their secoad

period. Then the Redmen fought 
back, tying the score :U\ all on a one 
hand push by Carr. 

With leas than 2 minutes remain-

and then stalled until the !»:•':."> mar ! <. 
Then, 1 >aly. attempting to tie the
